I'll try to explain my point of view to this problem.
I don't think that there are to many Hold-votes. I think that there are not enough active reviewers.

As an active author/reviewer it allways amazes me every time a new part, or a review, is met by total silence. I personally try to respond to any new file, or review, within a week. And when I review a part I expect the author to respond.
Why was the file uploaded, if you're not interested in the review?
Why should I spend my time reviewing a file, if the author isn't interested in my opinion?
I sometimes hesitate from voting, knowing that my Hold-vote is only going to add to my personal workload.

Why is the stipulated waiting period as long as three month?
I think that it is to long. One month is enough. If the author hasn't responded to a Hold-vote sooner, it should be OK for anyone to act on it. A longer period leads to that it gets forgotten. The Part Tracker seem to be full of forgotten files.

What is the point of voicing your opinion as a novote?
I sometimes see that obvious errors are pointed out that way, only leading to a limbo where nothing happens. No one is allowed to do anything until someone votes Hold, and then waits for another three month. A total waste of time (and a review).

This is my opinion/suggestion.
A file based on LDD data is free for anyone to edit (as before).
A new/updated file should be reviewed within a fourtnight.
A Hold-voted file should be corrected within a fourtnight.
A Hold-voted file is free to edit if the author don't respond within a month.
A novoted file is free to edit if it is left unattended for two month.

Anyone agree/against?
