Sorry for getting distracted by the specifics and ad-hominems again.
I already took the relevant bits away and I posted a link earlier

Any new rule that only member projects can ask after "their" SPI
tasks.  I'm not a member project and I'm not asking SPI to deal with a
member project or start a new task for it.  I'm simply asking what SPI
thinks is the current status of a task it seems to have left open.

That seems to be forthcoming, so I repeat:-
