I understand that this is frustrating to you but your solution is just
wrong IMO.
We don't have infinite resources so throwing people out just because
they did not respond withing a week is a bad joke. The better fix here
is ... you want to do the change file a bug wait for $x amount of time
... no response -> go ahead an commit.
