Hi, I think this happens to everyone at some time on these lists. Someone
actually coined a term for it (something dilemma); I forget who but I think he
is on this list.
At any given time 50 people might receive your mail 25 might read it,
12 might be interested, 6 might have time to respond, 3 might think they
actually "should" respond since they may have valid input, and the chances
of 1 of those 3 actually responding depends on so many things, but
I think mainly its "wait and see what others say" or "someone else will
review the patch", etc.
I can guarantee you its not because noone here is interested in your
Resend it to the list if you wish to generate discussion.
