If you do that, then why should I bother to report new bugs if nobody
is going to care, even read it? :-/

Carlos, for the same reason we always have - in the vain hope a bug
might be picked up and fixed. Having a report closed as "no longer
under maintenance" is not just "somewhat frustrating", it is extremely
frustrating, but what else do you propose we do?
Pursuing a bug for a product that cannot be updated is pointless, but
obviously the reporter is more than welcome to reopen if the problem
persists in a maintained version.

It occurs to me that there may be bugs, some of them as code, some not, that
'persist', and a fix in a later release could be applied to the earlier

I think that would be a cleaner, more gratifying resolution that a wild card
"WONTFIX Because no Longer Under maintenance".

At the very least it will trigger mail to concerned parties that will see that
the group is making an effort, even if somewhat belated. I think this is
PR than saying what amount to "we ignored you then and we still don't care".
