What is the procedure, if there is no response to such a bugzilla request? Is there maintainer a timeout, like with FreeBSD? Or I have to wait patiently until something happens? I was suggested, that as "provenpackager" I could do this, but as I don't have any Fedora packages, it is a no-go. Or could an other "provenpackager" do it for me? Updated sources, prepared by me, are also in bugzilla...
