For my own, these days (before moving to .py and in .py as well) I can't
spend reasonable time for glucose upstream maintainance procedires, except
spending patches from time to time.
Also my personal focus has shifted from glucose upstream maintainance to more
general work within sugar: SDK and support sugar doers, non-glucose coding.
So, my position in AC chart is a bit wrong.
