I mixed FC5 and devel in above paragraph. :)  Ignacio has had the newer
version in devel already, but the one you committed and built for FC5
is not his but the modified one.

Even if it may be a trivial upgrade, the thing I'm interested in is
whether we do have an active policy for "AWOL maintainers" or not? If the
policy is considered a burden, too insufficient, we should change it.

Well, asking for clarification and modifying CVS/submitting build jobs are
two entirely different things. Whether "to jump" should remain FESCo's
decision, IMO.

Has anybody tracked in bugzilla the contact attempts that have been made
in order to reach Ignacio?
