Hello,

i need to announce that i step back as BCM2835 maintainer with the end
of this year. Maintainership was a fun ride, but at the end i noticed
that it needed more time for doing it properly than my available spare time.

Nicolas Saenz Julienne is pleased be my successor and i wish him all the
best on his way.

Finally i want to thank all the countless contributors and maintainers
for helping to integrate the Raspberry Pi into the mainline Kernel.

Regards
Stefan

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you for being such a champion 
of BCM2835+ and Raspberry Pi. It must have felt like a thankless task at 
times, but you leave the upstream Pi support in a much better state than 
when you started.

Welcome Nicolas - you've been contributing to the mainline kernel almost 
as long as I've been at Raspberry Pi, and you're no stranger to the Pi 
repos on GitHub. I look forward to working with you further.

Phil

Thanks for all the effort you put in! You leave the Raspberry Pi upstream in
very good shape.

Nicolas

Thanks Stefan, it has been great working with you on BCM2835
maintenance. Do you mind making this statement official with a
MAINTAINERS file update?

Take care.

Sure, but first we should define the future BCM2835 git repo. I like to
hear Eric's opinion about that, since he didn't step back.

How about we move out of github.com/Broadcom/stblinux as well as Eric's
tree and get a group maintained repository on kernel.org, something like
kernel/git/broadcom/linux.git?

Then we can continue the existing processe whereby BCM2835 gets pulled
into other Broadcom SoC pull requests.

How does that sound?

this sounds like a good idea. In case the others agree too, can you take
care of it?

Certainly, let me work through the process and I will let you know if
that could work.

This all sounds fine to me, though since I'm not active any more we
should probably drop me out of MAINTAINERS while we're doing this
shuffle, too.
