This is wonderful!
The packages I can assist in maintaining and would like to be listed are:
I can also be available to help answer questions on any of the other modules.

There are regularly threads on the list about missing functionality and changes that could be made in the future, and currently those just get lost most of the time. Such an overview would also be very helpful for users and potential new contributors.

I've already checked with a number of people who I know are either the de-facto current maintainer or the original author of a module; the names you see in the draft are those that already responded that they would like to be listed (one of) the maintainer(s).
