Looking for a maintainer

Looking for a maintainer

Hello, everyone. I am Matthew Frazier, the author of Flask-CouchDB, 
Flask-Login, Flask-Themes, Flask-Uploads, and Flask-XML-RPC.

Recently, I started attending university, which has dropped my free time 
for FOSS coding down to something approaching zero. (How Armin writes all 
this amazing code while attending school, I have no idea.) Unfortunately, 
this means that several issues and pull requests have been piling up on 
the Bitbucket pages for my various extensions, which I do not really have 
time to resolve. (Sorry everyone.)

So, I would really appreciate it if someone would volunteer to maintain 
the extensions. (Basically just triage issues, fix bugs, accept pull 
requests, run the tests, make point releases, etc. etc.) I wish I could do
this myself, but I really don't have the time to do that anymore. If 
you're interested (and, preferably, have experience maintaining Python 
packages), e-mail me at leafstormrush@gmail.com.

Thanks,
Matthew Frazier

Hi Matthew,

I sent an email your way but haven't heard back from you yet. I'd be happy
to offer to maintain these extensions for you.

Looking forward to hearing from you,


Max Countryman
