That was perfectly valid answer and I didn't complain.
For the reference here is my request and some background so you don't need to talk about "a package", it's very concrete situation:
collectd has been sitting in EPEL testing for a while now, latest bugfix release build is http://buildsys.fedoraproject.org/build-status/job.psp?uid=510
Due to popular customer demand, please move it into the EPEL proper at your next convenience.
Thing is that we've not seen collectd reaching EPEL proper, it was first built in EPEL by rjones in August, then I did two minor bugfix release in September and last one was few days ago.
Until now I hoped this rule applies: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL/FAQ#I_built_a_package_and_plague_lists_it_as_part_of_the_needsign-queue._What_do_I_need_to_do_to_get_the_package_into_EPEL.3F
Just wait. The packages from the needsign queue get pushed by the epel-signers to the testing repos about two to four times a week. Packages from testing are normally automatically moved to the stable repos at the beginning of the next month.

Since collectd already missed two montly updates, I was concerned that it would be missed again, hence I brought this to epel_signers attention - I'm sorry for not being clear enough in my request.

Re. popular customer demand - if more than 1 customer asks about, I consider it popular, that's my metrics. What's yours?
