Thank you!  So Johan and Milan will maintain 'containers'.

| Johan pointed out the new library submission process to me -- thanks.
| I am interested in being the containers maintainer under the new library
| submission process.
| I have been working on the containers code for some time now (I had
| another data structure presentation on TFP 2011), my PhD thesis topic is
| Functional persistent data structures and I have been programming in
| Haskell for some time now -- I believe I can be the maintainer of
| containers. With the proposed submission process, I would also like to
| be the maintainer (this was not true with the previous submission
| process -- I stopped working on the containers package because of it).
| I think the proposal is really a way forward.
| Cheers,
| Milan Straka
