I won't review patches for vidstab because I can't. There is an open 
ticket which has a simple fix which I noticed, applied & tested. But I'm 
not well-versed in the internals of vidstab to be a competent maintainer 
for all other patches, as they may come up.

I believe you suggested to propose myself for maintainership *as a ruse* 
to get someone to review my patch and not in earnest. If you were, it 
would be insincere for me to go through with it.

I can vouch that the patch works at my end, and if that's not enough, it 
will still need to be tested/reviewed by someone else.

I can propose myself as a maintainer for docs if you are amenable.
