Definitively, we need more maintainers, but it's not happening.

If the team stays inactive, for sure, I will ask for removal.

Yes, you've done some work, and many thanks for it, it has been very
useful. However the reality is: since I stopped after the Newton

this point in the OpenStack dev cycle, normally it should have been
fully uploaded *AND* tested against tempest.
