is there anything we can do about the status/progress of gr-osmosdr, particularly
in terms of tagging new releases?

I understand that people do have a life and other priorities, and that those
priorities change.

But the fact that there's a Osmocom sub-project which is heavily used by
people out there, and which is packaged by distributions yet we don't
tag any releases for more than four years is also problematic.

What can I do (or anyone else do) to change this?  Sure, I could just push a tag
to the repository, but I'm not a developer of gr-osmosdr and hence I feel neither
qualified nor have any authority.

Thanks for your time and help!
