I don't see a good reason to turn away any amount of help, and I don't 
think we should ever forcibly retire developers because of inactivity. 
If we let them stay developers, they might continue contributing a few 
fixes we wouldn't otherwise get, or they may become more active again in 
the future. Developers are valuable people, and a lot of time has gone 
into their training and experience.

Do I think we should reassign their packages after a while, if they need 
love? Sure.

Do I think we should remove them from roles besides "ebuild developer"? 
Sure.

Thanks,
Donnie
