Certainly no threat was made. You quoted me and everyone can see that.

There is no new policy, I just want it to be easy for us admins to deal
with the lump of recently dropped scripts. I don't think I'm out of
line for asking that people do something that makes this a little bit
easier for us. Something as simple as submitting new maintainer info
now can reduce a lot of hassle later. While a maintainer may submit an
update once in a blue moon, we have to deal with submissions every day.
I'm sorry you don't understand that we have real lives as well.
