My point is that individual packagers should be willing to maintain the
packages they propose when they make them enter fedora, whatever version.
But as nobody may be forced to do anything, the FE project as a whole 
cannot make any promise other than try to have proper infrastructure 
and policies that helps finding unmaintained packages, co-maintainership,
quicker bugfixing and so on.
