The current non-responsive maintainer policy and even my proposal won't
exclude anyone from Fedora, just because he is not online. So in case a
issue cannot be handled by someone and the process is executed, then the
old maintainer can still become maintainer of their packages again
afaics. Imho it is more important to fix bugs or issues, than to make
sure that packages are only maintained by certain people. Maybe there
will be even co-maintainers after the non-responsive maintainer policy
is executed. The one who will maintain it after the procedure and the
original maintainer if he or she becomes resposive again.
