It does :)

This is not dirrected to you Upayavira or about the HTML block, your 
change log just made me wanting to comment.

IMO, we are not necesarilly looking for maintainers for all blocks. We 
mainly want to give our users and our selves a realistic idea about 
where our focus actually is.

If it happens that a block isn't supported by any comitters but that 
many users find it important, it might at first sight look bad for the 
users of it. But if we think a little bit more about it, it rather means 
that the block isn't in a community who care for it.

This could be a wakeup call for those users who actually care, to fork 
the block and support it to e.g. Sourceforge and build a community 
around it there. We should of course support such initiatives by 
providing links to external blocks from our site, and also by 
deprecating our copy of the block when we see that the external variant 
really took off.
