The problem is that most maintainers are dead in the NetBSD land,
this is a problem we've been suffering for the past years.

And some people that could commit some patches are not qualified
to review or commit the changes, so the patches are waiting for long

I don't know if things will change, but we are losing people for reasons
like this.
