It's not just you.
I think we need some kind of performance review for key "only one
person can do it" jobs in Debian, so that we can evaluate the
performance of those tasks, and then recruit new volunteers to take
them over if the project as a whole is dissatisfied with the
performance of them.
We already have mechanisms to do this for package maintenance; now
it's time to have mechanisms for other jobs too.
