18 I disagree with leaving maintainer-needed as default assign, if you will
19 fix bugs when you have time it's better than what I will do with
20 maintainer-needed packages.
22 Also, I think most of maintainers would like to have help with a lot of
23 packages, but that is not enough reason to change their metadatas to get
24 bugs assigned to maintainer-needed and us CCed
26 Have you seen any case when "if anyone wants to take it" he is not able
27 to because the package is "owned" by a herd?
29 If you want to promote that package be taken by other as soon as
30 possible, add a note to metadata telling that (I have seen it in some
31 cases)
