Why should it take ages for an ftpmaster to get around to it?
And more to the point, when nobody has gotten around to it, where can
one find out why?
There have been cases discussed where ftpmaster didn't "get around to
it" because of an *objection* to the package's inclusion in its
current form, but in which he didn't bother to tell the maintainer
The habit of utter silence from ftpmaster has come up multiple times,
and is very harmful.
