to bump the version number just for that.

need council agreement to be changed.

available, then a new volunteering author is desired.

doesn't respond timeously.

SamWhited and Tobias will read the PR and provide feedabck.

updates.

that ping the author or otherwise put out a call for someone else to take over.

Daniel says he wants to merge https://github.com/xsf/xeps/pull/420

council should ask the XEP Editor to look for new authors.
