Less Rigid Maintainership Structure

“‘Quite frankly, at least for me personally, what I would rather
have […] is a less rigid maintainership structure,’ Linus
Torvalds proposed. He went on to explain, ‘let’s face it, we are
*all* likely to be overworked at different times, and even when not
overworked, it’s just the fact that people need to take a breather
etc. And there is seldom–if ever–a very strong argument for
having one person per subsystem.’ He noted that git is an excellent
tool for spreading out maintenance, then added, ‘but even without
something like that, I think it’s much better to try to find people
you can trust, rather than strict maintainership
boundaries…'”
