I also have commit rights on github, and although I don't have enough
free time to be official maintainer, I could merge the occasional pull
request when I have some free time. I have not done so since I'm not
the maintainer and I was added to the haskell-suite project for other
packages, but if people would like me to be slightly more involved in
haskell-src-exts, I could do that.
