At least it would show that the request was recieved and will be
ignored. One can start to work around it (like asking someone else to
build qt-x11-free) instead of waiting for a month in case he is
working on the problem but just not telling.
In a lot of sittuations a simple acklowledgment is all that is needed
to get people to shut up for weeks. Of cause repeadatly acknowlidging
and then ignoring a problem wouldn't help. But you claim that James
and Ryan do the work so that should not be a problem then, right.
