I'm not sure what problem you are trying to tackle.

The way I see it, there are a few types of "slacker" status.

There are those who are just plain busy, and can't respond in a timely 
manner due to real-life issues.  Then there are a group who just don't 
have time for Gentoo as a regular maintenance task anymore, but still 
participate in discussions, development, etc.  Then there's the last 
group who are completely unresponsive and inactive -- these are the ones 
that are real blockers.

I don't like the idea of pretending there's no such thing as slacking, 
because there is.

We do have a practical problem (though I don't know how serious it is).  
We have healthy roll calls in some herds, but the developers are in a 
certain range of active to unresponsive.  When the herd is filled up, 
this gives developers and users the impression that it *should* be well 
tendered, but that may not be the case.

Steve
