I do not agree with this statement or approch. Something like;
  "grog continues working on Vinum with a few patches commited from 
   the public"

Is much better than nothing at all and in most cases is all that is
required. The developers will be keen to see that work is continuing,
the people most interested in Vinum will (more than likely) will already
be aware of what was changed/commit and the general public (like me)
will be happy to see that Vinum is not rotting away.

All that is required is someone (or some people) with the time to put it
