Q: If I know for a fact that a specific user is the author/maintainer of a certain package, is it OK to draw their attention to a question regarding that package by @-mentioning them in a comment?
I realize that depending on the popularity of their packages, some authors/maintainers might end up being pinged by a lot of people if we allow this.
At the same time, if package authors/maintainers decide to participate in answering questions related to their packages on Emacs.SE, that probably means they are following corresponding tags, and would see most of the questions anyway. As a result, they might not mind being pinged.
Maybe it would make sense to require that people wait for at least
x hours/days to get their questions answered before pinging package authors/maintainers? How do we feel about this?
