Of course not. The subject says "potentially unmaintained packages".
The message makes a fuss about it, even mentions scenarios like retiring
packages. What it doesn't comment on is that despite missing rebuilds,
a package may still be maintained both in Fedora and upstream. It doesn't
mention other potentially unmaintained packages which are missing on
the list because they have seen rebuilds (even if just for spec
modifications), but which are dead upstream and unmaintained in Fedora.
