Obviously there are other problems here, but my point was, we don't appear
to have a reliable gnu arch maintainer any more, which is what some users
would like to see. _One_ way of fixing that - in fantasy land! ;) - would be
to pay someone to do it full-time. (Of course paying people doesn't
_guarantee_ that they will perform as required, but most people don't get
away with not doing with what they're supposed to for very long in the
wage-labour system, for very obvious reasons.)
