[Haskell-cafe] Looking for maintainers or comaintainers on my Haskell projects

I'd like to become co-maintainer of "path" which I already know a bit. I
have also started watching a few of your other packages on GitHub.

I'm also in favour of moving "hindent" into the "commercialhaskell"

Thanks for creating all these packages in the first place!
