I think the important part is that someone does the work, whether officially
the maintainer or not.

If Bugzilla tickets are being ignored, the non-responsive maintainer process
should be started for those, independently of whether some rebuilds for
broken dependencies by non-maintainers happened or not. If the broken
dependencies were the only issue, then having anyone, no matter whom, fix
them solves the problem.
