[Dev] [Packagers] We have to distribute the maintenance of hacker fellows' packages

OK guys, here's a proposal for some core packages:

uboot (all): Isacdaavid
linux-libre (from AUR): Megver83
systemd: lukeshu (since Parabola uses a custom version maintained by him)

Isacdaavid, if you think maintaining uboot it's too much, I can help
you by maintaining linux-libre for all architectures. And about uboot,
can you continue with the development of the grub version? since
linux-libre for ARM now offers an initramfs, it is possible to have
grub without having to patch it to disable the support (as Emulatorman
told me he did)

fauno: can you put this proposed distribution in the pad, please?

Thanks guys.
