It's 7 days without maintainer response - if you're busy, as well get
from time to time, it just means that you explain that in the bug
report with just a single email. Let people know - we're not mind
readers. RC bugs are on the radar of every DD, you may have told those
you work with often that things are busy in real life, doesn't mean
that someone else affected by the RC bug will know, unless you put just
a brief note in the actual bug report.

It's an open development model, so communicate openly - even if you're
busy, sending a short reply to the bug report shouldn't be beyond what
Debian can justifiably expect from any maintainer.

7 days without email is a good enough reason to assume that the
maintainer isn't going to uploading a fix any time soon.
