    I'm sad to see you go (and can only hope that you won't leave the
    project entirely). But I would also like to thank you for the good work
    you've done. Even if it was short, everything you did is done and
    that's something you can be proud of. Especially given the conditions
    in which you started in this new role - please forgive me for that.

    I have a number of hwmon patches in my local kernel tree which I wrote
    and that have been reviewed by a trusted developer, or that have been
    posted to the lm-sensors list and that I have reviewed. I consider
    these ready to go upstream. I plan to gather these into a public tree
    and push them to Linus today or tomorrow. In the future, I will
    probably have such a tree available to be included in linux-next.

    Don't get me wrong, I am _not_ volunteering to become the new hwmon
    subsystem maintainer. Remember, I've been there before and you know how
    it ended. But in the absence of a subsystem maintainer, I don't want
    hwmon patches to be lost (and especially not mine) and I don't think
    that pushing everything to Andrew is a good solution either. So I'm
    just proposing to do my part of the work. But if Andrew really prefers
    to pick all the patches, I am not insisting either.

    In the future, I would like to suggest to have 2 hwmon subsystem
    maintainers instead of 1. Apparently none of us has the time to do all
    the work, but maybe some of us would have the time to do half of it.
    This is the path I took for the i2c subsystem, and while the change is
    still fairly recent, it seems to be working well enough.
