In most cases dependancy is correct and the real problem is in
dependant package. This is why I include a maintainer of the dependant
package by default. In general only human can recognize the "right
person" to contact. Sometimes bugs in mk/ scripts or or
anywhere else may cause the problem.

Anyway, the phrase "wip/slate needs wip/ecl which is failed and
maintained by asau@" is not blame or offence.
"wip/ecl is failed and maintained by asau@" is already in the "Failed
packages" section of the report.

This analogy is totally wrong.
