No, no. You are misunderstanding what I am proposing. I don't want to
replace Len I just want to act as a "proxy". I understand a maintainer
can be busy and could not have enough time to take care of the subsystem
is maintaining during a period because he's too busy for that.
Trust me, I fully understand that :)

As there are a lot of modifications of cpuidle, I am proposing to take
the patches when they are acked-by, to create a consolidated tree,
providing a better integration for cpuidle, a wider testing, preventing
conflicts and facilitating Len's work if he agrees to pull from this tree.

If that makes sense to add myself to the MAINTAINER file as a
co-maintainer (understand: send to me also the patches, so I can take
care of them if Len does not respond), I am ok with that.

It is just about helping :)

Do you mean to its intel address ?

Thanks
