I considered stepping up as an interim maintainer briefly, but this is
the exact reason
on why I punted.
Looking at e.g. `git diff --stat gitgui-0.19.0..gitgui-0.20.0` (which
is 16 month apart),
the workload seems to be very light, so I would not have concerns
w.r.t. time spent.
Stepping back a bit and asking "What does a maintainer do?" I think knowing the
language very well is not the top point, but rather looking at the design,
maintainability of proposed solutions as well as long term well being
of the project
is what makes a good maintainer.
That said I could step up as a maintainer, but for each patch I"d ask
the contributor to
find a reviewer who knows tcl well, as that is a part that I cannot
cover. And from a
contributors perspective this seems to be discouraging.
