+Subject: release of GNU %PACKAGE_NAME
+We're sending you this message on behalf of the GNU Project because as
+far as we know, you are the maintainer(s) of %PACKAGE_NAME.  (If you're
+not maintaining it, please just reply to let us know.)
+As far as we've been able to discern, %PACKAGE_NAME 
+has gone several years without a new (official) release.  If you have in
+fact made a recent release, please let us know, and sorry for the noise.
+We could not determine the status with absolute certainty.  Please
+note that the best ways for us to be aware of your releases are making
+the release available on and making release announcements
+via address@hidden and your Savannah project's "News" section (which
+shows up on the Planet GNU RSS feed).
+Otherwise ... it has always been a basic goal of GNU that its
+constituent packages be actively developed and have releases from time
+to time.  Without a release, we periodically ping the maintainer(s) to see
+how things are going.  So, could you please reply to this message with a
+response to the following questions?  Please include all and any
+relevant information, better too much than too little.
+1) Can you estimate, even roughly, when a new release will be made?
+2) Have you been able to make progress (fixing bugs, updating
+infrastructure, adding features, ...) since the last release, or since
+our last contact with you?
+3) Are there technical, legal, or other barriers to making a release?
+We'd like to help if we can.
+3b) Do you have any difficulties in making your package work with
+other GNU packages or are there any bugs in other GNU packages that
+affect your software?
+4) Other comments?
+In general, if you have any news or questions regarding the package,
+please let us know at address@hidden  Thanks for contributing to
+GNU, and happy hacking.
+Brandon & Karl (GNUisances)
