You are not in a position to decide what you want them to work on.
Including writing emails about things they *want* other developers to
do or not do. Oh, wait...

More accurate would be "You can decide what you WANT them to work on,
and even tell them so, but it's up to them to decide if they care to
bother listening to you".

It's real simple, folks. If someone cares enough to maintain dupload when
dput exists and is (in some eyes) more advanced, they'll ITA it and put
their time into it. If not, it'll stay orphaned and wither on the vine.
It's a beautiful system, and all the ranting in the world won't take the
place of the one developer who cares enough to take the time - if there
is one.

(Me, I couldn't really care less, as long as at least one useable tool is
available; dput suffices for my desires, so I won't be ITAing dupload).
