Making Nick Alexander owner of the Fennec build sub-module

Gregory Szorc-3
There is currently a sub-module of the Build Config module governing the Fennec build system. The peers are all the Build Config peers plus Nick Alexander. I am the current owner.

The sub-module was created to allow Fennec's build system to have some autonomy from the overall build system and to help cultivate peers who wanted to maintain Fennec's build system without the burden of becoming a full build module peer.

In the course of reviewing a Fennec build system patch earlier today, I looked at the peers list in preparation for possibly suggesting Nick Alexander appoint some more peers to do these reviews and to my surprise I - not Nick - was listed as the owner for the sub-module!

Nick Alexander has been spearheading improvements to Fennec's build system for ages. He's effectively functioning as a module owner. I'd like to formally propose that ownership of this sub-module be transferred from me to Nick so he has more autonomy and authority to improve the Fennec build system.

If I hear no objections by December 23, I'll consider silence as consent.

(I'm not sure if I need to follow this ownership change procedure for a sub-module. If not, I apologize for the noise.)

I have made this change on the modules wiki: Nick Alexander is now the owner of the Fennec sub-module.

Congratulations, Nick! Feel free to mint new peers at your discretion.
