I use the non-responsive process or active nagging quite a lot, since I
often stumble upon such packages (it already happend twice to youtube-dl
that the current maintainer did not have enough time). Thankfully the
start of the non-responsive process often leads to maintainers realising
that they have not enough time, so that they orphan their packages. It
seems to me that mentioning the non-responsive process is needed to get
some attention.
