[Haskell-cafe] How to force James Cook (author of dependent-map) evaluation?

the time scale for taking over maintainership without author authorization
is MUCh longer than 2 weeks.

IF you just need to get some simple  patch level bug fix improvements, that
is when the hackage trustees can help and get those changes on hackage
while respecting the possibility of the author eventually emerging again.
