Who is we?

Just because upstream is inactive doesn't mean that there are bugs and just
because upstream is inactive doesn't mean package maintainers won't fix bug
reports.  Most such components don't receive any bug reports whatsoever
because they are stable and work just fine for the niche users who need
them.   They don't add any real overhead to Fedora and cutting them will
just piss off users without any benefits.   As long as package maintainers
are willing to maintain them,  there is no reason to mess with the
process.   If we want to have a way to show that upstream is inactive, that
is pretty reasonable thing to do.
