I am currently looking for a solution to store UNIX users in a MySQL
database (virtual hosting).
The NSS module for MySQL got my attention, yet it has no active
community/team around it.

When I saw that the Arch package had been updated more recently, I
thought someone was working on it again.
Being a regular Arch user myself, the AUR seemed to me like a good place
to look for movement.
To be honest, I am very surprised that both libnss-mysql and nss-mysql
are such ghosts...

Thank you for your answers, I have the information I needed!
