Hi Tim,

Great!  Would you agree to be "officially" appointed to this role,
with Timothy?  I put quotes on "officially": when moving toward the
new maintainance team, I'd like to list maintainers and their roles,
including the "contributor stewards".  If you prefer not to publicly
appear but still work on this, that's perfectly okay too, of course.

Fully agreed.  Input from old timers will be precious, too.  I will
work on this as we are transitioning to the new maintainance team.

Also, I commit to achieve this transition by August, 1st.  This may
seem a bit far away, but there is really no rush here, and I want to
ensure we have a smooth transition.
