Well, we can try... and if not, at least we could perhaps learn from it
and how to make things like this not happen again.

Yeah, I don't know what to say there. The maintainer clearly didn't
answer or do anything with the bug. ;(
Sadly, I do see what happened here...
The bug never seemed to block any of the review blockers bugs back when
extras reviews were doing that. So, it would never have appeared on
lists of packages to review, etc.
Also, it shows as assigned, so
anyone who did see it would have assumed it was under review and left
it alone. Was it created assigned to notting? Did you use the template
on the new package review page on the wiki? or just manually created it?

Yeah. ;( No response from maintainer...

It's been reopened. I think it was closed in error, and the people
involved realize that now.
So, I my thoughts on this:
- We need to make sure and improve review process so reviews don't get
lost like that. I think a lot of improvement has been made since the
extras days however, since we have the fedora-review flag now, your
review flag would probably have had someone at least comment that it
was assigned, but didn't seem to be under review.
- We need to work harder to spot where maintainers need assistance and
are not answering their bugs. Triage folks may be able to help there.
- We need to work harder to identify easyfix bugs and get a group of
people able to go in and just fix them.
- Finally (and just speaking for myself), I would like to stress that I
am happy to listen to concerns or problems and try and get solutions to
happen. At every FESCo irc meeting there is a 'free discussion' period
at the end. On every FESCo scheduling post there is a chance to reply
to the list and bring up issues. Please, let us know where and when
there are problems so we can try and find some solution.
