General Maintainer Status


I'm so sorry if this is a repeat post. It seems like it would have already been covered by someone, but I just can't find the answer. I promise I've read the faq's and searched quite a few posts, but can't find the answer I'm looking for. I think my question is a simple one. My question is:

What is "general maintainer status?"

I see active status and understand that. Basically I have to have posts in 3 out of 5 weeks that I post to have active status. However, in "my account" underneath where it says, "progress towards active status" there is a part that says "progress towards general maintainer status." This one says "Over the past 26 weeks, you have qualifying activity in 7 week(s). 9 weeks are required for general maintainer status." What exactly does this mean? What is the difference between active maintainer status and general maintainer status?

Thank you so much in advance for helping me with this question. I sincerely apologize for not being able to find the answer in the faq's or in past posts. I promise I looked. I'm sure it was right there on my screen staring me in the face, but I just couldn't find it.

try are getting close!

mostly means you post a question or comment frequently enough...this 'activity' counts towards your status.
