How do I best encourage maintainers to update the software they are responsible for in various repositories?

Akema Yagi made sure kmod-jfs for CentOS 7 was updated amazingly fast which is greatly appreciated. On the other hand, I have requested updates of some other software packages and have heard absolutely nothing in months...
