Please, don't indulge toward trolling :-). There is no cabal^Wsecret
power in Debian who decides when to organize things and when to not
organize them.

BSP can be organized whenever you want but, as a matter of fact, they
get organized only when somebody volunteer to do that. If you want to
have a BSP, say, the 1st day after the release of Squeeze, you just have
to organize one.  For packages that drown into bug *reports* due to
their popularity, you might also want to organize specific *triaging*
campaigns (better if in coordination with maintainers); they will
relieve the burden of maintainers in doing triaging and let them focus
on actual bugs that random BSP-participants might not feel entitled to
