Re: Advice with uncooperative maintainers

I think that crucial problem with Ryan (as seen by me), that he doesn't
communicate a lot.

I almost start to think that he is some mystical figure which was
thought out by some developers.  Well I found some mails in 1999-2003
from him in archive (but last was in 2003/12), so he prolly really
exists :-D.

Some communication problems can be found back in 2001
but he did replied after all
but that has not happened lately :-(.

And I think that is the main problem.  Maybe he has some idea how to
maintain his packages, but going out and talking with other DD will

You can defend him as much as you want, but there IS problem with Ryan.

I am not judging where the problem exactly is, but I have not seen so
much complaints on any other DD and his packages (in debian-devel list).
And those are just two packages esound and gdm.
