It's the AWOL procedure, and it assumes that the maintainer doesn't
respond.

It doesn't cover the case, where a maintainer shows up from time to time,
but still doesn't take the requested/recommended action (such as applying
a patch or upgrading to a new upstream release).

And it boils down to FESCo deciding on how to proceed, which is exactly
what is needed in the non-AWOL cases, too.
