Not to be contrary, but usually people just say "And the guy hasn't
responed for a while" and that is enough for it to get orphaned.
Additionally, this package is out of date. It's theoretically possible
that he went on vacation 8 days ago, and it became out of date 7 days
ago, and this request came in after that... but it doesn't seem likely.

What would be nice is a TU standard for how long the person must not
respond for before the package gets orphaned. Perhaps one week is too
short, but it'd be nice to be consistent.
