I sent a send-pr about this. But now I have second thoughts. I am not sure
if the maintainer should be easily identified: 1) the maintainer probably
doesn't have time to answer common questions; 2) if it is a problem
report, then it should be properly archived via the GNATS bug/send-pr
(On a side note, I notice that improper html is used and, as far as I can
tell, useless TABLE and TR and TD tags. In fact, these improperly used
tags make the layout under links looks bad. Any thoughts? Should I submit
a problem report?)
