I think Huacai Chen and Paul Cercueil are also two potential candidates for the maintainer.
Both of them have been active for many years and have contributed a lot of code to MIPS.

Thanks and best regards!

Hi, all,

I suggest Jiaxun Yang to be the new Linux/MIPS maintainer because of
the following reasons:

1. He is familiar with Linux kernel & MIPS architecture.
2. He is active and has already contributed many patches.
3. He is not an employee of any corporation, so people can expect him
to be neutral.
4. He is young and has enough free time to follow the mainstream
development closely.
5. His English is good and is willing to maintain a good level of
communication with other contributors.

Jiaxun, what's your opinion?
Resend as MIPS List rejected the previous mail.

Thanks for your recommendation.

It's my pleasure to take this duty if I'm eligible.

I have experience in MIPS chips and have already involved in some review processes.
i.e.loongson, Ingenic/MediaTek & etc.

As what Huacai has said, I'm a pure contributor from community,
which means I will able to be neutral to MIPS family members.

[Also added Yunqiang Su to Cc list as he is the
only current MIPS company employee I know.]
