I do not see you doing any package activity release,
so you should refrain to comment on how we (package maintainers)
use our own spare time for this project.

Please note that sometime, things are broken upstream
and it takes time and it could require not available capability to
solve the issues.

If you want to help for a new package release that you care,
try to build it, check that every thing is in place,
provide if needed patches and guidance and I am almost sure
the relative maintainer will appreciate your effort.
I surely did
