So let me get this straight, he doesn't have enough time for the NM process,
but does have enough time to properly maintain those packages? What proof
can we possibly have to support such a claim?!

Admittedly, I haven't gone through the present NM process. Someone could
have added jumping through hoops while I wasn't looking, but I find that
somewhat hard to believe.

And, furthermore, why is this mail being crossposted both to a public and a
private list? How useless is that?
