I think you're correct that there can only be one maintainer per
project.  I don't have an issue with delegating it, other than it
adds another synchronization point for me to work with in coordinating
releases.  In some ways I don't have the impression that freshmeat
is really compatible with a 'release often' approach.

I'll probably find a way to start posting freshmeat updates again 
soon, but 10-15 minutes spent updating the freshmeat site is 
10-15 minutes taken away from something else.  And I'm not sure
it's all that important (but if others wish to correct my impression
on this, please do so).
