It is a great news that you are willing to act as maintainer as Linux-MIPS.

I noticed that you are mainly working some old machines.
And recently years, there are some new machines from Ingenic, Loongson, MTK etc.
MIPS Inc also have some MIPSr6 IPs.
I think that you need some of these machines.

In the last years, we see that the single maintainer is not enough as people may
quite busy.
Do you think that we need co-maintainers?
