In this comment on #1989480: Progress Bar style update Dries asked if I was willing and able to take on maintainership of the Seven theme. Unfortunately, at the moment I’m not able to. I’ve already decided that I need a break from core in order to avoid burnout, and I’m dealing with some health issues (not major, but chronic). I simply would not be able to fulfill my duties as maintainer at the moment.

If any critical revisions are required to the Style Guide itself, I may be able to put in some time. I am following the associated meta issue #1986434: New visual style for Seven, so I will chime in if anyone asks.

As @Bojhan suggested elsewhere, I’d recommend @LewisNyman for the maintainer role. He has worked on the new Style Guide as hard as I have, and I know he wants to get this work into core. In the short term, it may help to offer this as a temporary maintainership, until D8 ships. In the longer term, it may be worth thinking about co-maintainership, with a designer and a developer working together on Seven going into D9.

@LewisNyman sounds great! We need him to acknowledge and agree here though :)

I’m just saying I would ask him next :)

I'd be happy to talk about this. I've never maintained a contrib project, so I'd need to understand the responsibilities here.

For the record, Ryan would be my first choice to :-)

For your review. ;)

Edit: Sorry for the triple upload; airport wireless.

Congratulations! I think this will be really a huge step forward for design in Drupal.

Great! I'm happy to make Lewis the maintainer and to work with him on the Seven style changes.

Thanks for the support everyone! How could I say no? :-)

I read up on the responsibilities, sounds great to me. I'm looking forward to taking on this responsibility and to helping shape Seven.
