Adopt it, as anyone should know, if a package is written in C and a bug can be 
reproduced by someone other then the reporter, I'm always willing to help out 
and fix it.

I wonder if we need to have a wiki entry for package maintainers which says:
"I have a bug I cannot fix even though I'm an excellent packager as I'm
  unfortunately not a programming guru"

With as answers:
1) Ask for help on fedora-devel-list
2) If the app is written in C ask Hans.

And I'm _not_ joking, various packagers already know to find me, and I don't 
mind if others find out about this too. Ofcourse there will be a point when we 
need a Hans version 2 / a backup Hans, volunteers?
