I don't like the word 'packager' -- it's ambiguous.

If the 'package maintainer' is really only a 'package-monkey' and isn't
capable of getting the problem fixed or _even_ providing a coherent
explanation of why IPv6 support isn't present, why the package doesn't
compile on PowerPC/x86_64, or whatever the problem is, then they really
aren't someone we want to be responsible for a package in Fedora. Let
them contribute, by all means, but do not let them own and be solely
responsible for packages.
