Re: Homapages in list of maintainers

Hi. Thank you for your replies. I got relief to know 
this "long waiting queue" issue is rather common to all newcomers.

I remeber the mail about 6 months waiting recently on this list.
It's surely uncomfortable state which should be avoidable as much 
as we can.

Maybe he can get a call on holiday, I suppose. He is only afraid
that he can't set time windows to new maitainers team, and 
he thought that the time of getting the call is unpredictable at all.

Thanks for your information. That is what I want to know.

3 months or longer ! (sigh) but if it is required condition, 
all we can do is just to wait in the queue ...

I respect the people in the New Maintainer Group including you
for their work. I hope there were the one in Japan, but no one can
force the current official maintainer in JP to take charge of it,,,

I hope the New Maintaier Group can find the highly trustable and 
active "official" maintainer as their member in Japan, or somewhere 
in the far-east area.
