Uhm, I think your script is broken, as I've patched typhoon this year.
I've also ACKed a few patches that have been sent to me, and tried to
watch the list for patches that weren't.

I think you should try to contact the ones listed and see if they are
still actively watching for their drivers. I've not had to do a lot to
typhoon, as there is no new hardware coming out, and while I've sent in
several Acked-by's, not all of them have made it to the final commit.

Just because there are few patches from the person listed as maintainer
does not mean they are not keeping an eye on things.
