I have updated the paragraph about "Contact the maintainer".

Just add the package to dla-needed.txt together with a note that
documents when you contacted the maintainer. Then wait for a response
and act accordingly, either by updating the note with new information or
by removing the package again, if the maintainer feels no update is

If the maintainer changed then we have to ask the new maintainer for
his/her preferences again. Detecting maintainers who want to be added to
lts-do-call-me is indeed quite difficult. We want to avoid to send out
emails to all maintainers again. But there are only very few who want to
be added to this list anyway, so it is more a matter of instincts, tact
and common sense and often they will contact us anyway.

> Last, do we drop 'lts-do-no-call'?

I suggest to keep it, just to make sure that we never contact those
maintainers by accident.
