I'm not  sure what maintainer's role  would involved from your  point of
view, but I  guess you're mainly talking about  releasing and committing
proposed patches so  I will give my  opinion about that (even  if I have
not been active myself  so much on XCB lately, but  as nobody else seems
to reply... ;-)).

For a while, XCB releases and committing proposed patches have been done
by someone having  time and/or motivation to release,  either decided on
his own or requested by someone on the mailing list, so I think there is
no need to have a maintainer per  se. Namely, as soon as you have commit
rights,  you can  make releases  and committing  proposed patches,  so I
don't really  see the point of  naming someone to such  role, but that's
just my opinion...
