(Apparently the first message from my phone didn't get sent through earlier.)

I have spoken to Daniel, I can confirm he is willing to help
co-maintain GDC with me.

I have no intention of letting this project go abandoned, nor do I see
any end in sight of my continued maintaining and development of gdc. I
understand your concerns that GDC might not receive the care it
requires to keep up with the rest of GCC, and you can have my word
that I will do my utmost to ensure this will never be the case.
