I'll make sure to toss your names in the hat. One thing I'd like to
add though is that "hacking on gnome-libs HEAD" is not the only or
necessarily even the most important task for the GNOME 2.0 release
coordinators. As 1.4 release coordinator, most of what I have done is
communication and coordination with developers, the community at
large, docs people, translation people, the board, etc.

Given the large changes planned to gnome-libs HEAD, it may be
appropriate to have specific people to take charge of that work, in
addition to having overall coordinators for the 2.0 release, although
it might be best for these to be the same people.
