A grace period is only given when what the maintainer thinks/does matters, so I probably should have specified I was referring to orphan requests. (Internally, the backend actually allows any request to be rejected immediately, but it doesn't allow directly accepting orphan requests until 14 days. To accept those early, we need to close it, then manually orphan the package.) ... Merge or deletion requests usually have a reason beyond "maintainer inactive, I can do better" ;) so depending on the request we may decide we know all the facts already, or we may try to consult the maintainer first. Packages that violate the naming guidelines or are duplicates of another package will generally be deleted pretty fast, but those are special circumstances... -- Eli Schwartz Bug Wrangler and Trusted User
