    You didn't volunteer for libiconv- and gettext-related modules 
    so I reverted their maintainer to 'all'; 

Daiki has been the maintainer of gettext (the package) for quite some
time, as you know.  I asked him about libiconv (the package) in other
email; I'm guessing he'll reply after the weekend, hopefully with an
"ok" :).

However, what is the benefit to labelling individuals as maintainers of
modules in the first place, rather than just having everything be "all"?
Was it that Bruno wanted to personally approve changes to "his" modules?

I seem to remember proposing (years ago) to automatically sync gnulib
from gettext (the source repository or release, as preferred), and
Bruno did not want to do anything like that, but wanted to do everything
by hand.  I never understood, though it seemed to all magically work out.

I guess we should figure out how the gnulib updates of this stuff are
going to work in the post-Bruno world.
