Right, having one or more co-maintainers makes this a non-issue.  Even
during busy times, simply moving a bug to ASSIGNED is a response, since
it means you've triaged it yourself and at least agree it's actionable
at some future point.

If you haven't already started a separate thread to locate potential
comaintainers for the OpenChange/Samba4 stack, you certainly can do that
here. :-)
