Volunteering for BeFS maintainership
From: Luis de Bethencourt

Now that the 4.7 cycle is finished, I want to volunteer myself and Salah
Triki for maintainership of the BeFS filesystem.
Salah and myself have been cleaning up the code for the last few months,
and since the current status of it is Orphan, it would be great if we could
take care of it.
Personally, besides clean ups, I would like to add more documentation of how
the file system works, eg. including more function descriptions, so the Linux
implementation can be the ideal practical match to Dominic Giampaolo's free
book "Practical File System Design with the Be File System".
This book is the most in-depth I've found about any file system, which is
why I think having linux/fs/befs well documented would be very valuable to
eveybody learning about how file systems work.
I attach below what the change in MAINTAINERS would look like. If this is
approved I will send a proper formatted patch mail.
PD: I don't know if there is a formal process for maintainership in the Linux
kernel community. I am happy to follow that if it exists.
Also, if I'm missing anybody who should be in CC, please let me know.
