> who is accountable?

The PMC is accountable.  There has been much expecting someone else to take
care of things, and too little of making sure that things get done.
Everyone who has seen something that needs to be done, and hasn't at least
made sure that it did, gets to share the problem.  And everyone needs to
make themselves the solution.  If things aren't getting done, contribute.
Push the issue.  Make sure that the discussion happens.  If you don't think
that you're the right person to DO a thing for some reason, still take some
responsibility for helping to make sure that the THING gets done.

Folks like you, Berin, generally do just that, so I am sure you understand.

It only gets harder if people are waiting for "Fred Bloggs" to deal with it.
If everyone takes responsibility, it should not be a problem.

Sometimes it takes an entire Community to raise a project*.  :-)
