Great! Would you agree to be "officially" appointed to this role, with Timothy? I put quotes on "officially": when moving toward the new maintainance team, I'd like to list maintainers and their roles, including the "contributor stewards". If you prefer not to publicly appear but still work on this, that's perfectly okay too, of course. > One thing I do think would be helpful, particularly for documentation on > maintenance of org mode, would be a clear outline of project goals and > philosophy.

Fully agreed. Input from old timers will be precious, too. I will work on this as we are transitioning to the new maintainance team. Also, I commit to achieve this transition by August, 1st. This may seem a bit far away, but there is really no rush here, and I want to ensure we have a smooth transition.
