If someone had been waiting for that long, and tried to reached out on the
mailing-list or irc, then I'd like to hear you.

I really advise people to start with smaller packages and/or reach out the
first because, we're having a more global shortage of reviewers.

Moreover, people interested in comaintaining packages, especially *upstream*
maintainers should consider the comaintainership path.
