[Geary] Geary maintainership

Hey all,

It seems that email client we all know and love needs some maintainership. We probably all know about the Pantheon Mail fork, and while I respect the work done by the Elementary and Pantheon developers, I still prefer the GNOME desktop and apps that conform to the GNOME HIG. Hence I'm interested in keeping Geary alive.

So I'm writing to see if there is (anyone else) out there interested in picking up maintainership. Since I have done a small amount of geary hacking, I'm happy to volunteer, but I am still something of a vala novice and will be pretty time-pressed until I submit my phd thesis later this year. So I'd mostly be limited to just wrangling bugzilla patches from contributors and doing releases for a while.

I'd also be happy if there were one or more co-maintainers, if anyone else was interested.

Once we have the who sorted out, we should contact Jim/Charles/Robert and see what they think about passing on the baton.

It would be great to start getting some existing patches landed, and thinking about addressing some of the more pressing issues - things like the webkit1gtk dependency, working out how to collaborate with Pantheon Mail, better support for non-GMail servers, mailbox management, the account UI, extending search, etc.

What do you all think?
