How about we aim instead at what is reasonable?
I too have an outstanding developer request.
It is for a small and relatively unimportant package. I've been
told politely there will be no action until after this freeze
And I'd guess that if I were capable of preparing
boot-disks-powerpc.144.deb or vax.8mm.deb (you get the idea)
action would overnight. A complete PAM package, maybe two
or three days. Some new game - see you next year. I'm
comfortable with that.
