(If this file is included in a project, you can find the list of current caretakers at the bottom.)
In a small classical open-source project, maintainers do a lot, and if maintainers don't have time to do a lot, usually the project stalls. Finding new maintainers is hard because few people actively want to take over all the responsibilities of a project. There must be a different way.
With Caretaker Maintainership, "Maintainers" become "Caretakers". Caretakers' only mandatory responsibility is to grant Releasers commit and publish access to the project.
