	Of course doesn't matter whom queue i'm waiting, but if you don't have
free time for it now, and the others are more or less in the same
dynamic, it's a problem that we should resolve.

	Thanks to dato via irc and this messages, these are the firsts news i have for almost a month. 
I don't how the others newmaint are doing it, but i don't like be waiting 4, 6 , X months without news. 
Maybe i little more of communication or feedback would be ok (Even just to say "next month we will 
start looking at your report..."). The only way that i have to check my applayment is via web,
that i must check periodically since i don't received any mail when
there was any change.

	Well, as i said, the time to finish everything is not the main problem
for the new maintainers, what i don't like is to wait without any news.
