Re: Slowdown problem of a Debian package

Hello all,
Thank you for precious advices.
Since I forgot to attach Cc: <me>, I'm reading the mail archive.

However, I won't make a technical dispute about this issue.
Is the committee suitable for such case?

I'm not opposed to any modification in Debian GLOBAL.I think
that it should be done by Debian people under their freedom.
Rather, I'm welcoming it, including the two commands: 'htmake',
'htconfig' which are part of Debian GLOBAL. I rejected only to
take it to our version.

My wish is just to see new package based on a recent GLOBAL.

How about making a rule like follows?

	'A maintainer must orphan the package or explain the reason
	if new version is not released for two years or more in spite
	of users's demand.'

That is, 'Accountability, or orphaning'.
