There seems to be consensus among key Biocore members that this is a
good idea.

Here's the plan:

1. We will modify a number of "our" packages to have the maintainer
   set to Biocore and list an email alias (something like
   biocmaintainer@ or biocpkgs@)

2. Biocore members (you know who you are) can let me know if they
   would like to receive mails sent to the alias.  

3. Biocore members are encouraged to fix bugs and make improvements to
   packages where the maintainer is Biocore.  We only ask that such
   updates are accompanied by an explanatory email sent to bioc-devel.
