Subject: Give up your modules!

Hi all,

No names, but if you happen to be sitting on a module which other people
depend on and you're not going to fix bugs, give up the module, offer
someone co-maintainership or figure out *something* which gives users a way
out. I realize that not everyone has a pile of free time to constantly
upgrade and maintain modules, but if it's something widely used and you
don't have time for it, isn't the responsible thing to find a way to get
those bug fixes out there? 
Cheers,
Ovid
