I have asked Jesper, as the last "official" maintainer, as well as my co-

maintainer for KPhotoAlbum.
In short: I'm glad to inform you that I am the new maintainer ;-)
What does this mean?
When Jesper laid down maintainership back in 2012, that position contained

contributed to KPhotoAlbum. A special thanks to all the translators who do an
Also, I would like to thank all people writing here on the mailing list (and
occasionally in IRC or via personal email) - a community of users that
actually want to use a KPhotoAlbum makes writing and improving it so much more
 More on my plans soon…
