KDE Frameworks: Looking for maintainers

I thought it'd be interesting to some to get updated stats since my last call 
to arms.

Out of the 57 existing frameworks 25 have no maintainer (yes, that's almost 
45%). It's still too much for my taste, but it's better than the 60% we had 
previously, thanks to the one who stepped up since my last call!

The modules without maintainers are spread this way:
 - 8 are tier 1 (so depending only on Qt);
 - 4 are tier 2 (depending on Qt and a couple of tier 1);
 - 11 are tier 3 (larger dependencies)
 - 2 are tier 4 (kde4support and modules helping for platform integration).

Out of the ones without maintainers, the most critical to get a maintainer are 
the following ones:
 * KItemModels;
 * KConfig;
 * KGuiAddons;
 * KWindowSystem;
 * KCrash;
 * KDED;
 * XmlGui.

If you feel like you should be the one maintaining some of those, seize the 
relevant ones on the wiki!
