This is both true and wrong.

We are not that many people in the list|team. There have been some
activity peaks, particularly when I pushed strongly for some QA work
in the whole set of packages (dropping defoma and related
things). Since then, the activity is still remaining far from low but
mostly, as you say, with people maintaining packages in the whole set,
which they feel responsible for (Hideki being by far the most active
in that matter).

There was indeed not much to discuss...:-)

Still, there are many areas that could be improved and your arrival in
the list is very welcomed as you're also bringing ideas and
suggestions...in short, you're "shaking the tree" and that's Good.

> So, what do you think about this?

Usually, such things don't happen because one decides them. The mood
increases because people invest some time in this....more or less what
you're doing now..:-)

So, well, just continue to do it, we'll try to follow...;-)
