The Windows Runtime port of Qt covers the platform-specific code in Qt, 
most of it in the "winrt" platform plugin, which enables Qt to run as 
Windows 8/10 Store Apps, on Windows Phone 8/10, and Windows IoT Core.

As the standing Windows Runtime Platform Maintainer, I hereby step down 
from my post. Over the past year, my contributions to the port have 
wained, and I simply do not have time to keep up with Windows 
development. It would be in the best interest of the Qt Project to 
nominate a new Maintainer.

That said, I would like to propose Maurice Kalinowski as the new Windows 
Runtime Platform Maintainer. He has been active for the entire existence 
of the port, and has been the primary contributor to it for at least the 
past six months. He is continuously staying informed of the state of 
Microsoft's OS technologies, testing Qt on different devices (including 
the HoloLens!), and making the port better in general. In many ways, he 
is the acting maintainer already.
