SubjectRe: [PATCH] gigaset: stop maintaining seperately
Thanks to you, Paul, for all your contributions, and specifically for
keeping the driver maintained for four more years after I had to abandon
it for the same reason.

I had a lot of fun working on that driver and I learned a lot in the
course. Now it's time to move on without regrets.

All the best,
