Okay. What do you suggest for "team maintained" packages where there is no active team member? File MIA processes for each of the uploaders? And then? The MIA team's bugs are not RC bugs,

An automatic time-based "orphaning + RC" process like the one described in [1] would solve (or greatly reduce) of most of these issues.

I think, just letting such packages rot for one or two decades does not help anybody, certainly not our users.

I'd say that this whole discussion reinforces the need for a third option between "it's fully maintained" and "it's orphaned" [2]. A third option that recognizes and provides rules for low-commitment QA work on non-actively maintained packages.
