we are no "bug expert" (that could be the owner of bugs.debian.org),
we are simply the maintainer of reportbug.

what's there taht stops you from contacting Alioth team and ask them
what you can do to help achieve your goal?

could you please explain why? there's no need to be a tech guy to ask
if some sort of coordination/development can be done on alioth side.

I don't like to keep bugs opened because "maybe someone will come up
and solve it", in particular for bugs we can't do anything to solve
only by ourselves and when the submitter seems not willing to push
further on alioth. (the reason the bug was not already closed or bein
pinged is that it didn't fell under my radar).

Please contact Alioth team, or find someone willing to push it thru,
else we can't do anything but close this report.
