Stefan Liebler takes care of the S/390 specific parts of Glibc for quite a while now. He is doing a

I think it is time to appoint him machine maintainer for S/390.
Ok to add him to the machine maintainers list for S/390 in the wiki?
Martin Schwidefsky and myself will stay in the list as well for now.
As the lead maintainers for the IBM S/390 port you may appoint any
developers you wish as co-maintainers for the port. You do not need to
ask for any permission, but you should make a public post about the new
maintainer. Stefan should also feel inclined to introduce himself/herself
as the new co-maintainer. I would be interested in knowing about Stefan's
particular interests in glibc subsystems (we are always looking for more
In summary: The glibc stewards have no position dictating to IBM who
should or should not be a maintainer for S/390. You have to make that
choice yourself between those interested in the health of the port.
Welcome! Thank you for volunteering to be a machine maintainer.
I'm very glad to have someone of your caliber working on glibc! :-)
starting from today, I'll support Andreas and Martin as machine
maintainer for S/390. I've already updated the wiki
As being new in this role, I will concentrate on S/390 specific parts.
Perhaps we can discuss about reviewing glibc subsystems in future, but
not in these days.
