Seeking Maintainers

Maintaining a project that is used by hundreds, thousands or even millions of people can be stressful. Replying to issues, merging pull requests and answering questions in forums is a vital part of every open source project, but it takes a lot of time and energy, especially if you also work full-time in your day job.

This list is an index of open source projects seeking new maintainers. If you find a project that sounds interesting and you're looking for a way to help out, feel free to take a look at their posting and apply as a maintainer. If you maintain a project yourself and feel stressed out, you're more than welcome to add it to this list.
