Okay, so it sounds like FESCo wants to see whether:
1) provenpackagers feel comfortable just stepping up and making changes
after they've done due diligence trying to contact the maintainer.

2) Whether there will be any hurt feelings on the part of maintainers
when provenpackagers make changes to their packages.

Since the OP said they have provenpackager and has tried to contact
thias, I guess it's time to see how these two work out.
