  It is not as if we are discussing doomsday. :-)

  Previously we had a defined schedule, all packages should have been rebuild 
until September 18th. That was fair.

  How does that plays with the time periods defined in 
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Extras/Policy/AWOL_Maintainers
?

  It seems to me that this case was not considered there.

  Note that I don't oppose this procedure I would like to have clear 
guidelines to proceed.

  Is it enough to rebuild the missing packages and only later take ownership 
of the packages according to the procedures described in the above page?

  What are the possible solutions?

  I have interest in some of the listed packages, and I would like to fix 
their status. At the same time I don't want to step over other packagers 
toes.
