New home for time zone stuff by 2012?

I'll be eligible to start drawing a pension in mid-2012. Since I'm accustomed to slow-moving Quaker process,
that makes it time to get serious about finding a new home for time zone stuff.

There are several pieces of the puzzle (some of which haven't seen much work of late):
	Data maintenance
	Data distribution
	Code maintenance
	Code distribution
	Mailing list maintenance
	Mailing list hosting
	Standards work (for example, tweaking POSIX TZ environment variables so Godthab can be represented)
	Code enhancement (for example, year zero work and Julian calendar work)

There are different types of landing place:
	Governmental organizations
	Non-governmental organizations
	Commercial entities

Everything could be moved under one new roof or different pieces might go different places.

While I'm happy to continue time zone work in the future, I also understand that it may be best for others to do the work.

Anyone? Bueller?
