Hi Arthur,
thanks for all your IMSM work over the years! It is great that you can
continue contributing and do so more broadly.

For the moment Jes Serensen will be co-ordinating mdadm (once I make a
release ... tomorrow?) and Shaohua Li will be looking after the
kernel/md side. I'm sure there is plenty of room for you too though.
Only one person (at a time) can queue patches, but several can
collaborate at development and support and bug fixing and testing and
....
I suggest you find ways to co-ordinate with them.

This:
https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=108741
is currently most important in my mind, but there are other things to
do.

Thanks,
NeilBrown
