[Foundation-l] Process for a project to request a setting

Thanks for your answer. This process does not seem to work well. Here is an example:


Two months already and no response. Also no request for a link. And see the last comment from es-wp, so it seems to be a general problem that can potentially hit every project. My impression is that there are no body who feel responsible for this. If it is so, I think we should set up a responsible person for this. As far as I know it doesn't happen every day and it is surely not a thing that takes a lot of time.

Any opinion or suggestions?
