Thanks for the confidence in me, but actually, I would prefer not to.
I already don't have enough spare time to keep up with my existing
projects. And I wanted to focus on moving towards 1.7.x, which is not
feature-complete from my point of view now.
This doesn't mean that I wouldn't help out in keeping 1.6.x up to date.
But I simply cannot promise to have the necessary time.
1.6.x stable should be maintained by someone who really uses it in the
future, to keep an eye on stability, and who has at least the time to
keep tings from stalling for months.
