Thanks, Matthew, for your many years of guidance and support of nibabel and its contributors. I credit my engagement with nibabel in particular with teaching me how to write and maintain open source software, and I can only say thank you. It really is the bedrock of the community, and I hope to keep it in worthy shape.

Just so y'all know, Chris has kindly agreed to take over the role of
lead maintainer for nibabel.

Well, I should say, he had kindly agreed to take on the title, because
the observant among you will know he has effectively been doing that
job for some time.

We nibabelers don't have any real governance docs, but, as my last act
as lead maintainer, I'm going propose the following:

* the lead maintainer has veto power over commits to nibabel
* they should use it only very rarely, when all possible compromises
have been explored.

If anyone disagrees with this little formalization, please do say.

Thanks very much, as ever, to Chris, and good luck with the task, that
you are already doing...
