Dear Morgan,

Apologies for the delay in getting back to you.

I’m very happy to hear you’ve found Glean an interesting project to look at.
Your patches also look good to me, so I’ve gone ahead and pushed them.

On the other hand, I’ve had very little time, as you might have noticed, in
recent years to devote to Glean. Quite frankly, if you believe you want to
develop against it then I am very happy to give full membership and even
administration rights to you.

I’d be very happy to provide you either with pointers in the code if you need
them, or to be a discussion partner if you want to run your ideas by someone,
but beyond this I’d be very interested in seeing what direction you might take
the project. Conversely, if you prefer, I’d be happy to retain commit
responsibilities and look over your proposals.

I also tend to develop in Gitlab rather than Savannah nowadays. I don’t know
what you would prefer, but I’d be happy to set up a main repository there
instead if you prefer development in Gitlab too.

Either way, please let me know if you would be interested in commit rights /
admin rights, and happy hacking!

Best wishes,
