I see several users now complain for lack of updates, meanwhile they
did not offer any reasonable help for the time being; I guess every
maintainer here tries to do his best but, as this is not a job for
me (and for any other maintainer here) and we use our limited free
time, no one can really expect anything.

Maybe we could do better, and BTW I will upgrade my packages ASAP..
nonetheless, as I believe such simple complaints are somehow
disrespectful for us all, if anybody is not satified he can easily step
in without hesitation and take over maintainership for all of (my)

No offence taken and I don't intend to sound too harsh, but I hope
to be deadly clear about this topic. Regards.
