Project Maintainer Changed

You might have noticed it already, Geany's project maintainer has changed. I
resigned as I don't have as many spare time as I want to do the job as good as
it needs to be done. So someone else has a chance to do the job better and
with more love and free time. Luckily, Colomban volunteered for the job and we
were happy to have a new, cool project maintainer. Things won't change much,
Nick is still actively developing as well and probably I'll commit the one or
other bit from time to time. The most obvious recent change is, that this
release is already made by Colomban. Thank you!
