I do get some responses from maintainers to those emails, and (except
in the cases where the email gets stuck in my mbox) I honor their requests
for an extension.  OTOH in general I get personal replies and not replies
to the list, so people aren't seeing that interaction in public.

So, I'm going to have to say I'm a little frustrated if I need to send
another round of mail even on top of that.
