| Given the problems that we seem to have with maintainers going absent
| would it make sense to send out a periodic ping every M days to all
| maintainers?  Then if we didn't receive an answer within N pings the
| package could be marked orphaned automatically.
| The only thing to work out in the above scenario is M and N.

M = 3 months (some people have long vacations in summer)
N = followed by 1 ping for each 3 weeks.

Total of 4 months of absence.
