No, you are not doing anything wrong. It just takes much more time than
you think to get stuff integrated... And the silence... You get used to
it. Keep sending mail, and hopefully someone will answer. The problem
is that everyone is too busy with their own task, and there is no general
dispatcher for fixes. Sometimes everyone says: someone else will do this,
so it never gets done.

All this of course is my opinion,
