I'd like to propose Shawn Rutledge as maintainer for Qt Quick. Shawn has a lot 
of experience working with and on Qt Quick, recently also in some customer 
projects using Qt Quick. He'll be able to focus most of his work time on Qt 
Quick and has quite some ideas for improvements, for example when it comes to 
touch handling.

Shawn has the team in Oslo behind him, so he wouldn't have to carry the torch/
mantle all by himself either ;)
