This was meant to be read as " Automating the NonResponsiveMaintainers 
policy" not as an threat not as anykind of changes to the 
NonResponsiveMaintainers policy itself ( other than the process being 
automated as in the steps having to be performed by the reporter which 
he currently can do with any bug btw ) and the week period I put in 
there was because I currently had weekly run cron job in mind and the 
fact that the NonResponsiveMaintainers policy takes 3 weeks to complete 
from the reporters point of view with announcement to this list but that 
"week" could easily be turned into a "month" instead which would make it 
month +3weeks
