Great to see another group getting involved!

It's too bad there hasn't been enough time to build up some experience working
upstream and getting at least a few more commits under their belt, but this
sounds like things are heading in the right direction.

Since the new folks are still so new - if this works for you - I would
recommend continuing on as the official PTL for one more release, but with the
understanding that you would just be around to answer questions and give advice
to help the new team get up to speed. That should hopefully be a small time
commitment for you while still easing that transition.

Then hopefully by the T release it would not be an issue at all for someone
else to step up as the new PTL. Or even if things progress well, you could step
down as PTL at some point during the Stein cycle if someone is ready to take
over for you.

Just a suggestion to help ease the process.
