We are in the luxury position of having two great candidates.
I briefly talked to both Robin and Shawn yesterday and one option would be to 
have a shared maintainership. This seems to have worked nicely for Qt 
Networking and dividing the responsibilty will lessen the burden.

I'm looking forward to having more direction and vision for the development of 
the Qt Quick module as well as getting back to a big round of bug fixes which 
is due in the near future.


PS: I briefly checked the rules (http://wiki.qt.io/The_Qt_Governance_Model) and 
found this bit:
"Once seconded, a new Maintainer is appointed unless a community member 
objects to the Chief Maintainer within 15 work days. If an objection is 
raised, the Chief Maintainer decides, usually within 15 work days."
