Well maybe Sam just thinks that being a mantainer means "producing a

mantainer is *not* IMHO, not to those extremes anyway.
what do you want - a marriage contract?
(I'm not trying to correct CGF, just trying to ease Sam's fears.. fears
that I also had, when I chose to maintain packages)
IMHO beaing *both* the creator and the mantainer greatly simplifies the
mantainer task as is, in general, a "good" thing.
And if the problem is in the whining I guess Sam'll stop to ask for
mantainers just ilke I stopped saying aloud my self-complaints about the
rsync bugs I still didn't solve 0=)
