Sorry I don't have explained my thoughts well and sorry also for my
very bad English.

With "interest" I meant active participation. For successfully
maintain a kernel in Ubuntu we should: test it, packaging it, release
new version and support the older ones, triage bugs, forward bugs
upstream, interact with Ubuntu Kernel Team and so on.

Since Festy I'm the only one who care of all these jobs (expect the
upload work and some fixes on headers packages made mostly by Luke

As you can imagine I can't continue alone. It is also the primarily
reason because I dropped -rt in Maverick (and some conflicts with
Ubuntu bureaucracy).
