With Savannah, there is no need to "take it over." You probably
already have commit privileges. I think Ken would consider giving one
or two others release privileges as well.

If Ken goes this route, or hands over the reigns to you and you go
this route, it might be useful to create a nmh Maintainer's Document
to keep the project managers on the same page.

I've been keeping up a maintainer's guide for the MH-E project at:


This will be useful if I get hit by a truck and someone else needs to
figure out what was going on in my mind. I find it invaluable as a
checklist every time I make a release as well.

Feel free to use this as a starting point for the nmh project. If you
do, let me know and I'll give you instructions for getting the Texinfo
source via CVS or you can grab it yourself via ViewCVS.
