Hi Jesse, Manthan, Nitesh,

I wrote an e-mail earlier this week to Bioconductor support to take over 
maintenance of the MetaNeighbor package. Nitesh nicely offered to help 
me with the task, but would like to make sure that everyone agrees 
first. Can you please briefly confirm the change by answering this email?

Thanks everyone,
