Hi Marco,

I like this idea... I'm also wondering what should we do with code
without a maintainer...

In my opinion this is not really needed, I would just prefer keeping
the list of maintainers somewhere on wiki page...

I'm fine to maintain these parts of code.
By the way, we should start calling qgis python bindings just shortly PyQGIS.
