FWIW, the September 2012 commitfest also went without a manager *for a
month*.  I started doing the job at that point because it was pretty
clear to me that there was a serious problem.  And when I finally closed
it (just before the Nov. 2012 one was about to start), it was my
intention to manage the next one as well; however somebody else told me
they wanted that job, so I stepped aside.  That was, probably, a bad
decision on my part, and I blame myself for not keeping a closer eye on
things that I intuitively knew were going wrong.

Seconded.  I particularly like the fact that Craig is not already a PG
developer, so he's not going to be working on his own patches.
