Hmm... based on experience, even when quite a few maintainers are there on
gluster-users/gluster-devel, quite a few times the questions pertaining to
a component won't get answered may be because they are busy with something
else. It is a bit cumbersome to find out what are the questions that still
need to be answered with the existing model.

So at least for questions it seems like a good idea to participate on
github, so that if a question doesn't get answered we would at least know
at some point and answer it.
