You will receive them.  Probably a delay in the mailing list.
You will get replies from Tomas and Stefan, at least.

That's why I asked.  It is easy to think prematurely in terms of a
solution, without completely characterizing the problem.

Sorry, but I don't have the time to look into your fuller
description, but maybe someone else does.  It would probably
help people help you if you provided a more succinct description,
_in terms oF Dired only_.

You can ask also questions about specific bits of your code, of
course, but it is less likely that you will get help if you just
point people to all your code and ask for help.

IOW, be specific, narrow the scope, and describe in terms of
Dired.  That can help others help you.
