Stepping Down

   With good fortune, you will continue maintaining your package for
many decades.  But sometimes for various reasons maintainers decide to
step down.

   If you're the official maintainer of a GNU package and you decide to
step down, please inform the GNU Project (<>).  We
need to know that the package no longer has a maintainer, so we can
look for and appoint a new maintainer.

   If you have an idea for who should take over, please tell
<> your suggestion.  The appointment of a new
maintainer needs the GNU Project's confirmation, but your judgment that
a person is capable of doing the job will carry a lot of weight.

   As your final act as maintainer, it would be helpful to set up the
package under `' (Note: Old Versions).  This will
make it much easier for the new maintainer to pick up where you left off
and will ensure that the CVS tree is not misplaced if it takes us a
while to find a new maintainer.
