    As such I think some sort of agreement along the lines of "please give me some time" could've worked. To further illustrate that, there's a similar issue for a different project, created on February 22nd. It wasn't until 2 days ago, one month after creating said issues, that a DMCA notice was filed. And based on the discussion, the only reason for this was the authors of zRedShift not cooperating.
