I'm not struggling, I'm just asking people not to touch these packages.

At the same time the project maintainers of d:l:p should probably be giving
atleast 2-3 days for actual maintainers to accept requests before they do,
there are plenty of other devel repo's where the maintainers do a much better
job of this.

That's not reasonable, no. People can go on vacation, be sick or busy with other
stuff. Don't assume that just because someone isn't responding on the spot they
are missing in action.

Again, no other FOSS project that I have worked with handles it like this and
that number is very high. There is no need to be chasing upstream 24/7.

In the past the openSUSE project has generally considered a few days to a week to be reasonable, if you are going to be away for longer then that its probably worth letting the project maintainers know your going to be away. This policy has come from complaints from contributors that they submitted a request a month ago and no one has done anything with it. So in the past the decision has been made to try and find a happy medium between the two sides.
