ns-3 maintainers have responsibility and authority to oversee different portions of the codebase. Maintainers work with ns-3 contributors to marshal in patches or extensions to their respective modules. They also participate in timely code reviews, bug fixing, and respond to questions on mailing lists, pertaining to their respective modules.

Maintainers coordinate with other maintainers for patches that have larger scope than their particular module. Maintainers may also, in the future, help us with platform-specific issues (e.g., ns-3 Cygwin maintainer) or packaging.

If you would like to serve as an ns-3 maintainer, please contact the ns-developers list.
