yes, I have only waited a week, and I agree with you that people can be very 
busy for one week and not able to answer mail.   But a week is not the 
impression I get:

This is not just 'a few days'.

As I said, I'm not involved with volatile at all, and getting no answer for 
a week and, on investigating, finding that the relevant mailing list is 
very low-traffic with the latest messages being two other people 
complaining about delays of a month, does not give me a good impression.

If this is a temporary situation, all the better.
