In my own experience in open source communities, the project members themselves rarely pick a maintainer; the maintainer selects him/herself by constantly working on the project at a time when the previous maintainer feels like stepping down

I doubt that naming someone "Angband lead" will magically make things happen faster. I don't even care, I'm really excited to see pyrel

This is what happened when takkaria stepped up, and didn't happen when they stepped down. We argued long and hard but as fizzix says, nobody wanted it so we have a leaderless team. (Which, IMO, works very well, whether anyone wants to work on Angband or not.)

But it did happen when Derakon stepped up with Pyrel - he is very much the maintainer / lead dev on that, and the rest of us contribute code to his vision.

So we're running both models concurrently, which is interesting to say the least. I hereby apologise to Derakon for all the times I've had the Angband hat on when arguing arrogantly about Pyrel!
