Great, thanks.

The top of the MAINTAINERS should have this information, look in the S:
Status section about what type of category you are in.

Basically I'd like you to be the one to handle patches that are sent in
for the code, just by reviewing them, you don't have to send them on to
me if you don't want to (some usb subsystem maintainers do do this, like
for usb-serial and xhci), it's up to you.

Also, any bug reports or questions about the code would come to you
first, along with the rest of the linux-usb@...r developers, you aren't
alone in this at all.

Does that help explain things better?
