Hi all,

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.
