My intent is to be very responsive to the administrative end of maintaining
the project, i.e., applying patches to the main branch, bug triage, etc.,
while contributing new code in my (limited) free time as well.  It would
kill me to see the project die due to any of my shortcomings, and I resolve
that if I start falling behind on maintaining 3to2, I will call for someone
else to come forward to replace me.

I will always respond to e-mails sent to amentajo at msu.edu, so please
contact me if there are any concerns, early if possible.
