I have had at least one response from someone who was no longer actively
using Arch Linux and had been inactive for some time, and then went and
disowned their package. Whether they'd been gone for more than a year by
the time they were contacted, I cannot remember, and I doubt I'd be able
to check that now if I went and looked up who it was.
