I think we have there a problem again.
I have to admit that I do not look to often at the package feed and hope
that someone else takes care. The biggest problem seams to be inactive
maintainers, I think if a maintainer does not react in 3 weeks anyone
can overrule him.

There are also many pull requests where someone requested some changes
and then nothing happens, we should probably close then after some weeks.
