To add my 2 cents worth on this point...  even when there is a maintainer, the dev team are reluctant to believe them when they vouch for the ebuild or package and would prefer to modify the ebuilds without any reasonable knowledge of the package and the impacts that those modifications may have. I had a lot of trouble getting the dev team to place my unmodified hercules-2.17.1 ebuild in the portage tree, despite the fact that I am involved with the hercules development team. The gentoo developers seem to have a 'we know better than you' attitude.
