I think it should be nice to have some rules or something for bugs when
package maintainers don't act, but are not MIA (since they appear to be
active otherwise), and the issue is trivially fixed (by a one liner
patch, or the reporter has already explained how to do and even proposed
to do a patch). For example I have seen packaging related bugs ignored 
for more than one year. Some are even annoying for other maintainers who 
need these fixed to avoid issues or fix these sanely in other packages.

I think this is something for FESCO.

There is already
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackageMaintainers/Policy/WhoIsAllowedToModifyWhichPackages
but it doesn't really cover this situation. It is clearly not a security
issue/crash. It is more like a "Minor, general or cleanup changes", but
in that case the effort to post through bugzilla has already been done
so at least one should assume that the packager acks before the
submitter makes changes in CVS.
