SubjectXFS leadership and a new co-maintainer candidate
In the XFS community, we have 2 clear leaders in terms of contributions of 
significant feaures and depth of knowledge - Christoph and Dave.

If you look at the number of patches submitted by developers since 3.0 who have
more than 10 patches, we get the following:

319 Author: Dave Chinner <dchinner@redhat.com>
163 Author: Christoph Hellwig <hch@infradead.org>
51 Author: Christoph Hellwig <hch@lst.de>
35 Author: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
34 Author: Chandra Seetharaman <sekharan@us.ibm.com>
29 Author: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>
28 Author: Brian Foster <bfoster@redhat.com>
25 Author: Zhi Yong Wu <wuzhy@linux.vnet.ibm.com>
24 Author: Jeff Liu <jeff.liu@oracle.com>
21 Author: Jie Liu <jeff.liu@oracle.com>
20 Author: Mark Tinguely <tinguely@sgi.com>
16 Author: Dave Chinner <david@fromorbit.com>
12 Author: Eric Sandeen <sandeen@redhat.com>
12 Author: Carlos Maiolino <cmaiolino@redhat.com>

If we as a community had more capacity for patch review, Dave's numbers would
have jumped up even higher :)

It is certainly very welcome to bring new developers into our community, but if
we are going to add a co-maintainer for XFS, we really need to have one of our
two leading developers in that role.

Best regards,

Ric
