That's not what I mean by coordination. What I'd like to know is whether
it's time to work on an NMU for a bug. I figure it's appropriate to find
out if the maintainer is working on the bug by sending him an email. But
did someone just send him an email yesterday? Is it worth me putting a
lot of time into a fix, or does someone else have one almost finished?
That's the kind of stuff I'd like info on. Is anyone doing it?
