It would be unethical for not posting. I see no harm in DR's post
above, it just informed about relationship between these two bugs and
Non-Responsive Maintainer procedure in response to you closing the
bug without specifing any proper reason neither in this thread nor in
bug reports.

It seemed to be ambiguous to me also at first glance.

IMHO nobody is coming in middle, it is just that you are not being
polite in your first response. DR suggested me Zile package and he was
first to  file up 'maintainer not responding' bug. I showed my
interest and accepted to continue the procedure he has started. So, he
was always in picture and had intention of contributing.

I regret my mistake for not waiting long enough and posting a bug, but
I don't think this was the reason for closing the bug in first place.
