I do not know, but I feel sympathy for the maintainer there, in the
meaning that it must be really quite hard to keep an overview of the
issues vs patches vs noisy discussions like this one ^^ . Maybe I am
just very ignorant of some tools that can be coupled to mailing lists
and that can make life easier, but I can see how the mailing-list
based collaborative development workflow can become quickly
unmanageable. At least having everything gathered, cross-referenced,
tagged, with permalinks to the code, etc, in an issue tracker, may
help a bit... But may be wrong of course.
