Technically hwmon is orphan (according to MAINTAINERS.) But that's not to
say that various people aren't looking after various parts of it and
I believe Andrew Morton is acting as maintainer of last resort.

More developers and code reviewers always welcome!

If the primary use is as an input device then talk to Dmitry. Some
accelerometers are being taken into input. There are some open questions
on naming etc currently being debated so anyone interested should get
involved in those asap.
