Right. But you could also offer your help and I could be very happy.
Your "pings" seemed to be annoying requests (if you think about your one
line mail and your bug report for a new release the same day logjam 4
has been released... :) ) and not an help offer. What about saying "hi,
I'd like to maintain or help you with logjam", or "I have new
ready packages here: <URL>". It's another way to collaborate". :)

You are following in a good way its development and I can only be happy
if logjam can be "fully" maintained. So, good work! ;-)
Apologies again from me because of my lack of responsibility for the
work on logjam package.
I wanted to put this question under discussion because I think we can
always have better way to work... for us and for the whole Project.
