13 There was no visible progress on the bug for a month and a half. Some
14 proposals/questions appeared once I suggested giving the package to
15 someone else in IRC.
17 I don't wish to spend my time providing guidance that will likely be
18 ignored and carefully reviewing his work on this package. I would much
19 rather hand the package off to someone who can work on it without
20 direct supervision.
