10 I've always considered herd == maintainer. When a package is related to
11 one of the herd I'm part of, I prefer setting it in metadata.xml instead
12 of adding myself as the maintainer of the package.
13 A herd should be more responsive than a single individual (depending on
14 the size of the herd, of course). Also, it would mean less things to do
15 when the maintainer leaves from Gentoo dev community.
