I want to remind YOU that many of us working on Collectd in ours _spare 
and Team SHOULD do all possible to facilitate the work of people.

But I see the opposite.


There is no changes in "policy" for 5 months.
There is no feedback.

Maintainer is ignored. Maintainer is unable to merge own changes.

If you ignore your maintainers, you will not found support from 
community and project will dead.

> There is no plan to fork the project

What would be strange to hear about fork plans from person with email in 
@collectd.org domain.
 From person of Team who implement destroying changes.

There is russian proverb: "the road to hell is paved with good intentions",
originally english "Hell is full of good meaning and wishings".

Again: There is no changes in "policy" for 5 months.

Great improvement: forbid to _maintainer_ / active developer merge his 

This is your thanks?

IF you implement one change per half-year.....
IF you (will) answer to feedbacks, received on changes, after half-year 
of silence from your side.....
IF you merge pull requests after years of ignoring .....

I have no comments about "project" growth then.
