Not quite. There are those who are interested in keeping code alive but
can't work on it, i.e., users, not programmers. But they, if notified,
could convince another people, programmers, to do the work (such events
of volunteer calls are not often), e.g., hire someone. But announcements,
may be, should be more clear about this, for the case such people wouldn't
_guess_ such possibility exists. BSD tries to be more business-freindly,
ain't it? :)

Indeed. Thanks for understanding.
