Default Cristian Balint seems to be a non-responsive maintainer

Hi there,

As per the policy[1], I'm making formal request to mark Cristian
Balint as an non-responsive maintainer. Repeated attempts over the
last few months via bugzilla have not been responded to, two examples:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=341391 (grass)

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=414441 (gdal)

Lack of reponse has meant that all packages related to various GIS
packages such as gdal, grass, mapserver have languished with broken
deps in rawhide for over a month. Also, he has not rebuilt a single
package via koji since 02 August 2007 [2] and is not listed as being
on vacation[3].

Before mass orphaning, at the very least, I recommend that ACLs for
cvsextras members be opened up on his packages to allow rebuilds of
these packages in rawhide, especially since these GIS packages aren't
packages that usually ship by default on any spin and are very much
leaf packages.

Alex

cbalint is no longer with RHAT, which may be why he has not responded to
any issues.

ACLs have been opened for cvsextras on:

fftw2, gdal, grass, iverilog, libdap, libgeotiff, mapserver, and ogdi

He affirmed that he would make the backporting of libdap security
patches in epel (libdap changes API about every year) :- It was a
condition for me for inclusion of libdap in EPEL... I am not fluent
enough in C++ to do that work. Anyway it is too late now, it is in
EPEL, just hoping that no security issue will creep in...
