Maintainership of the S-Lang modules

Guenter asked me privately whether I could create a separate mailing list
for the slang-modules-related posts (from debian-installer, ftp-master,
etc).  He rightly arguments that this Alioth group is mainly for jed
maintainership and we are getting too much noise in pkg-jed-devel about
the S-Lang modules.

I am afraid that it is not possible to filter the messages and send them
to another mailing list, because the maintainer of the slang modules is
currently the Debian JED Group <pkg-jed-devel at>.

There are three ways to cope with this problem, all involving the change
of the maintainer.  First, we could create a new mailing list for the
slang modules and start using:

  Maintainer: Debian JED Group <pkg-jed-slang-modules at>

(or whichever name we choose for the ML).

Second, we could create a new group at Alioth specifically for the S-Lang
modules.  I dislike this solution because it takes time to set up and
administer projects at Alioth.  If someone is willing to do it, I will
follow her.

The third solution is to transfer the maintainership from the DJG to
individuals.  In this case, I am afraid it has to be me.  If you guys
really wish this solution, then I will comply to it, although it is not
my preferable solution.

What do you think?
