I can no longer maintain containers

I consider myself competent to serve maintain Data.Sequence and Data.Tree.
I am much less familiar with the other modules in the package. I would
particularly like to serve as co-maintainer if anyone else is interested.
Alternatively (and better, in my opinion), the package could be split.
Data.Sequence is barely connected to the rest of the package, and the only
other module that depends on it doesn't need to. Running under GHC,
Data.Graph depends only on Data.Tree (in a hypothetical ST-free system, it
also depends on Data.IntSet). So I think it makes sense to have three
packages: one for Data.Sequence, one for Data.Tree and Data.Graph, and one
for Data.Map, Data.Set, Data.IntMap, and Data.IntSet (which share most of
their API and are therefore a sensible package, though generally
independent). I see no reason not to divide these three portions among
three maintainers.
