Just to add two cents here, since this is sort of a open source
community driven thing, I think there should be multiple maintainers in
case of a disagreement. 2 is good, 3 is better so that it's impossible
to have a split disagreement and the third person can break the tie.
Github is cool as the e-mail based system is really, really bad. But
if it is on github, I think it should have a neutral name not a
person's name and allow multiple people to merge in pulls.
Unless of course, Eric wants to take 100% control of this whole thing.
