This is where 'multiple owners' of a package would be useful (I know its
already been discussed a week ago). Besides the maintainer assigning a
secondary maintainer, some maintainers could perhaps be given to option
to say, in effect, "anyone interested can be my second maintainer", but
that person's maintainership does not affect the maintainership of the
first maintainer.

Or something like that...
