And if that is the case, fine. But let's again take a look at the example he
held up, gitlab. The package was updated two days ago, addressed none of the
concerns I and other commenters raised. His response is: "Sorry but I don't have
the time now to look at all your changes. I'll do that later." Nothing yet, not
to mention that it wouldn't even build at the time he uploaded it because of a
bad checksum.

And this isn't the first time, he adopted some other packages I orphaned but kept
an eye on. It took people emailing him directly to get him to update a package
that had been marked out of date for a month.

Maybe it is just a matter of not enough time, but does that really change
