Agreed.  It is atleast a metric that can be tweaked as opposed to
pretending that all packages with inactive upstreams is a deep resource
drain on Fedora.   I would suggest that when we identify such packages,  we
take steps to try and get more maintainers for those packages first before
trying to cull them off.   For instance, sending a note to fedora announce
list and here with the list of problematic packages.   That way, everyone
will have a fair chance to try and rescue the packages they care about.
