Through the lens of open item procedure, I see no defects in your offer of ownership. I have updated the open items sheet to reflect you being the new owner. Thanks. My personal opinion is that the community should not undertake a "rewrite" of a nontrivial feature after freeze. The fact that a progenitor was present in the tree at freeze doesn't make the rewrite much less risky than a brand new feature. So, I suggest that you instead revert the patches and review that rewrite for next CommitFest. Even so, I am okay with your current plan.
