You can't expect them to reply to a random Hi, if that is what you are

#gimp is pretty active on usual European evenings.

Figuring out that, while the build is running, nothing is rsynced ,has
been done entirely on IRC. If we need more persistence, it would be
better to file an issue - and bring that up on IRC if necessary, it's
much more easy to post issue URL than mailing list archives.
