Then may I suggest adding Andrew to the maintainers? Because if you
follow get_maintainers.pl right now, it only states that you are the
maintainer. That strongly implies that you should be the one doing
reviews, and we should at least wait for your Acked-by in order to
merge any RTC patches. And past experience show that we can wait for a

Don't get this wrong, but the way you maintain it is rather unusual,
and your silence about this just makes us wonder what to do with your
patches, up until completely merging them anyway. For the record, it's
something I feel rather uncomfortable about, but it seems like it's
the only way to get something merged anyway.

Not having time to maintain your subsystem is totally fine, and as a
hobbyist maintainer too, I completely understand it. But if you can't
cope with the patches anymore, maybe you should find another
co-maintainer? Especially if you have reliable contributors, like
you're suggesting.
