The point is for one person with an active interest in the module to  
be able to check with developers to see why they are not responding  
to the issue queue. I've been told several times to check with the  
module maintainer when a module I was interested seemed to be  
abandoned. Two modules have been turned over to me when I reported  
that the maintainer's contact form was disabled. It would have been  
nice to have been able to ask the former maintainers if they intended  
to be actively involved in future development.
