Yes, that's a good thing. I was suggesting you ask for resubmission
more easily (instead of waiting for an answer).

Well, it's not the first time this happens, alas.

We post more or less proeminent notices, often at,
sometimes involving the GNU Volunteers Coordinators. This is a tedious
process because some of the volunteers start helping and are being

I'd be in favor of pinging the recently helping people who recently
"disappeared", and ask Dennis if he's still interested in the job
