I wasn't trying to call anyone out (I didn't even look at the commit
logs!), I can't tell if you are being serious or sarcastic here. Only
that you let the maintainer know you were thinking about doing
something to his package so he has a chance to 1) do it himself or 2)
tell you why he was holding off on it.
If we have packages that are weeks/months old, those are much bigger
candidates for rebuilding or dropping. Samba was only about 3 hours
old, so calling it "out of date" is maybe a bit of a stretch, more
like "out of hour".
