I think that in the rush of Suhaib leaving, we didn’t finalise this process.
Is it acceptable to have a group email/account as maintainer? We would have gene-expression using ebi.ac.uk, which email gets to all the Expression Atlas team members. Then we wouldn’t need to repeat the process if any of us leaves.
