I'm afraid you got me wrong. I was looking for somebody saying, I'm
feeling responsible for XYZ. Adding them to commiters list on SF
currently is not a big deal. Even its sometimes a pain in the ass, also
branching on svn is possible and working. 
So I'm not talking about sending patches, but feeling responsible and
taking care of which differs a lot IMHO.
