The mail said "there are lots of packages in maybe-failed state, we
need help sorting through them."

So I thought back to recent history, when packages I maintain were in
maybe-failed state on arm, and had sorted through them, identified the
problem, and sent email.

The email was apparently entirely ignored, for weeks.

So when I hear, "we need people to do task X!" and I did a piece of
task X, and was simply ignored, I become hesitant to volunteer my time
to do more of task X.
