I move that Paul be allowed to take over the 'mx' package.  I further
request approval from a member of FESCo.

Policy: If at least one FESco member approves the takeover, and no one
         objects within 3 days, you may take over the package.


I also move that pyOpenSSL be orphaned, allowing another willing
packager to take it on.  This requires approval of FESCo.

Policy: It is common for a Fedora contributor to maintain multiple
        packages within Fedora, and the situation may arise where
        multiple packages with a single maintainer need to be
        orphaned. Given that, it would be quite impractical to create
        a bugzilla ticket for each package. In the case where a mass
        orphaning is likely, the above should still be followed
        choosing a single package owned by the potential
        non-responsive developer. However, the formal request to the
        Fedora development mailing list should include all other bug
        reports open on all neglected packages from the same
        maintainer, indicating that the maintainer is indeed
        non-responsive. The Steering Committee can then step in and
        orphan the other packages if necessary.



https://fedorahosted.org/fesco/ticket/5 is open to track these
requests.

Thanks,
Matt
