I'd take maintainership of dune. More and more OCaml projects switch from
ocamlbuild and other legacy build system to dune:
It is very likely that in the future all important OCaml-based
applications will (make)depend on it.

OCaml developers will have a better experience using the standard OCaml
package manager "opam" anyway (I'm using merlin-lsp via "opam pin"
instead of merlin).
