Good idea, I like the status report requirement too. Nothing stringent,
just a "still working on it" if nothing else.
If I was working on a topic and I got hit by a bus, somehow I doubt that
my family's first thought would be "we need to alert the Fedora List"
There are a million other reasons why someone might stop (or delay) work
on their project, and this would allow someone else to pick up if need be.
So, if there is no status update after <x amount of time (1 month?)>
then that topic would be up for grabs.
Some sort of communication attempt prior to reassigning it would be good
Sure. I am working on a format for the list as well as the best format
to put it in to make it easy to maintain.
