maintainer not responding

debian-user list,

Debian is a great distribution thanks to the countless hours
volunteers have contributed.
But what can be done when a maintainer is not responding to the bug
reports they are responsible for?

Specifically I am interested in these bugs:

Some have patches, some need to be forwarded upstream, and lots just
need a response like "I don't have time to fix these bugs, could
someone please help.".
