Go start the list. When you get something that's worth posting, go
post it on the tracker. And if you post something with an actual
patch, then maybe it'll be accepted.

Why are you demanding that busy people attend to you? You are
effectively demanding that Guido, who has a full-time job as well as
being head of a large project, should - without compensation - read
and actively respond to every one of your whiny posts. That is simply
not going to happen unless he *wants to*. It's up to you to make it
worth his while, or at least interesting. That's how things work.
