that's exactly what I think... anyway what I meant with 'removing MIA
maintainers' was: send him a notice that he'll be removed if he won't
take care of his packages/other tasks for foo more days, if he does
not answer or tell us he's giving up his key is removed from the keyring
and etc... I don't see the point on keeping long-MIA maintainers.. after
that he has to go through nm.debian.org again.

Besides that's a good test to check if the applicant has time 
and will hehehe
