Assaf gave me commit rights to the savannah repository a few years ago
when I was sending in a lot of patches (And then I promptly got
distracted by life and forgot about it for ages) that I think I still
have. I'm happy to blow the dust off my old contributions and merge
them in and go through the list archive looking for bugs that were
reported and maybe fix. I don't really want to volunteer for the
official maintainer title though; much rather let someone else deal
with making releases.
