Collective maintenance



Hi,

A friend of mine pinged me and asked about the status of this bug

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=442921

Just using this as an example here since it a simple one. This is apparently just a simple missing dependency but hasn't been fixed in a while. Just using this as a example, assuming that the maintainer is busy, on vacation or something and cvsextras is open, many others could fix this issue bypassing the primary maintainer for the moment but there doesn't seem to be any policy on what kind of fixes can be collectively done. I remember seeing similar discussions before so this isn't a isolated problem. Do we need some guidelines on this so folks like Michael Schwendt (again, just as an example specific to this bug report) can just go ahead and fix the problem noting the details in the commit message instead of having to file a bug report?
