What is the course of action to be followed if a package maintainer appears to 
be unresponsive ?

Specifically, I speak of the usb_modeswitch package, for which there has been an 
update-to-latest-upstream request pending for sometime now ...


In the BZ that I submitted[1], I even offered to co-maintain or take over 
ownership of this package in case the package maintainer is hard pressed for 
time, without receiving any response.

I would like to see this bz fixed before I can start pester^Whelping out on BZ 
515412 [2], which is causing me a lot of inconvenience.
