You're right, absolutely right about that.
However, I think that sometimes people have to realize that sometimes they
are at a point in their life in which they do not have time to deal with
Debian packages. If he doesn't have time to maintain the KDE packages, then
perhaps he should make that announcement. I did not make a judgement call on
Ivan Moore when he left this project, because, as you say, KDE is an
extremely difficult package to maintain.
Now, I am not speaking for or against Mr. Cheney being maintainer as I too
think he's doing a pretty good job. Whether or not he has the capability to
maintain this package or not is a judgement call he must make, not us (to
My point is that we need to leave him alone on that decision since I don't
think he has done anything significant that would make him a bad maintainer.
We don't even know what he's doing behind the scenes. We need to give him
the benefit of the doubt for a little longer.
