Taking a (semi-)break

Hi all,

A combination of a serious illness in the family and some of the heated 
discussions taking place on other KDE mailing lists has led to me 
burning out on the KDE front. As a result, I'm taking a step back (some 
of you may have noticed this already). I expect to get back into the 
swing of things when I've recovered my energy, but I don't know how long 
that will be.

The reason I'm telling you (mailing lists) this is that I maintain 
several frameworks, plus ECM. So far, I've just been keeping half an eye 
on review requests and skimming email subjects for things I think I 
should comment on. I can continue to do this, but it means that they are 
not getting the love I feel they deserve.

If anyone is willing to take over or share maintainership on any of 
these, let me/the list know. I'm more than happy to mentor someone in 
this role if they don't feel like jumping straight in the deep end 
without armbands.

For reference, this is what I currently maintain:

* extra-cmake-modules
* KApiDox
* KImageFormats
* KDesignerPlugin
* KMediaPlayer (part of Porting Aids)
