media-video/vlc looking for a new maintainer
 
Hi,

After more than 5 years maintaining it (sh*t I'm old), I've
progressively lost interest in it, to the point that I consider it is
better that someone else takes care of it. So far I have dropped
maintainership to the video herd but vlc usually needs more specific
attention, so I fear that it may not survive long if left as
such.

From what I've read in various places, I'm pretty sure there are
competent fellow devs interested in it, so, please step up!
I will of course help the brave(s) that would take it over with what
they may need to know to be at ease with the package.

Alexis.

Thanks for all you have done maintaining VLC all those years. It is
undoubtedly one of the most popular and versatile video players out
there. I really hope someone steps up to become its new dedicated
maintainer.

(Personally I have no interest as I use and co-maintain SMPlayer.)

Given I'm in contact with upstream I might cover the interim since a
release is impelling, I prefer shared maintainership though.
