 From my point of view there is a really simple answer to that question: 
By delegating them to the maintainers. And if they aren't any, it won't 
get fixed. It's as simple as that. After all you can always volunteer 
for the maintainer position and if, and ONLY if, you get turned down you 
have something to complain about. In other words, I do accept your 
complaint about Unix code since we have a maintainer there and we should 
figure out what's going wrong. I do NOT accept the complaint about 
SharedQueue unless you are willing to sign up for the job of maintaining 
Collections or at least the part of it you were just working on.
