Add new maintainers for subsystems #629
There are a couple prerequisites for doing more of this, though:
If current contributors are interested in doing maintainership work, feel free to indicate as much on this thread - though it's probably better to PM me about it in slack
Here's a high-level sketch of what I can picture as independent subsystems. This is arranged as a tree because that's how I think of it - it should not be read as implying or necessitating any particular hierarchy or social power structure.
We have almost no clear package boundaries around these areas, which can make the boundaries of maintainer responsibility a bit fuzzy. However, I don't think it's a good idea to split up packages just for administrative purposes; rather, maintainers will need to communicate and get along with each other, working collaboratively on issues that either land in fuzzy areas, or clearly cross lines.

@JGailor amazing, yay!
what i'd be looking for in a docs maintainer is:
Basically, know what the docs are, when they need to change, and use the context you have to think they can be improved.
Could you DM on the gophers slack so we could talk about it some more?
