Are you volunteering to maintain a contrib site?

We do send notes, especially to those that that are submitted as PRs we
put them in the suspended state with a note saying we're in feature

say the behaviour on linux-kernel when patches are posted... Linus doesn't
include everything, and he frequently misses things.
