I read your email this morning.  I didn't have time to fix the single 
file instantly.  I'm reading and replying to this email now.  I still 
don't have time.  Likely I'll have forgotten it by the time I do have 
time.  I just don't keep track of email very well.  I'm sorry, but 
that's just how it is.

Limited resources, limited time.  More *regular* *active* contributors 
with commit access would help.  But we don't have 'em.
