Takeover of cryptonite and memory

Hello Hackage admins,

Several board members of the Haskell Foundation have tried for many 
months to contact Vincent Hanquez regarding his cryptography packages, 
that have become cornerstones of the ecosystem and of industrial Haskell 

Recently, I have received complaints and questions about those packages 
being major blockers for the adoption of newer GHC versions.
I have thus made another home for those packages with the explicit aim 
of diversifying the ownership and maintenance so that we do not have 
such a high bus factor.

I would like to start a Hackage takeover procedure for the following 

* cryptonite
* memory

Their new home would be the haskell-cryptography GitHub organisation, 
and emails have been sent to past contributors, in order to maintain 
continuity in the development teams.
My Hackage username is "hecate". Chris Dornan (in CC) is also involved, 
and his username is "ChrisDornan".

Moreover, as a board member of the Haskell Foundation, I intend to 
provide resources to help coordination between the stakeholders of these 
packages, in the community and industry.

We will be at your disposal for any question.
