And how many of those are activelly developped ? How many will stay in
Fedora once their packagers are asked to actually maintain the
infrastructure they need?

You have a vicious circle feature lag -> less users -> less
developpers -> static maintenance -> orphan once something requires
code adjustment and there's no one to provide it anymore (xorg is
seriously thinking of dumping TWM now for example)
