SEEKING NEW MAINTAINERS #1892
Dear Cobbler community,
I'm no longer able to commit enough time to this project to drive it forward. I have to apologize to you all; i have been in denial for too long now and it's hurting the Cobbler community.
So, i'm seeking volunteers to take ownership of driving Cobbler development forward by merging pull requests, maintaining the website, distro signatures and occasionally do a release.
Please indicate your interest in this issue, if you have any track record contributing to Cobbler you will get commit access. This is a chance to contribute to an opensource project that still is quite relevant.
Hope to hear from you!

@jmaas The project is called POWER-Up (https://github.com/open-power-ref-design-toolkit/power-up). Beyond Cobbler's base functionality it interacts with network switches (allowing automated port detection and configuration) and provides some post OS install cluster configuration (via Ansible playbooks).
@jmaas I've made only a couple of small additions to Cobbler recently, but our organization has actually embraced cobbler as a core for our provisioning system. I can foresee us making more contributions in the future, one I just thought of last night that I now realize is similar to what @jaywcarman is doing, but would be directly integrated into cobbler. (I will need to look harder at @jaywcarman's project.) I would happily volunteer as a maintainer because it would directly effect our efforts going forward.
Hi @jmaas I can contribute some time from schedules to test the PRs and answer to issues. I've worked on a product which is built on the top of Cobbler. It is for building and managing HPC clusters and I've a good understanding of bare-metal system provisioning. My contribution to cobbler in past is very minor but will try to make the Cobbler community active.
