It very much depends on you.  As long as there is enough of people
willing to maintain the given code then in could/would be
maintained.  Nobody can order you to stop.  If you are asking for
how long _others_ will be doing that - well, who knows?

Not enough of "bodies" were interested in RH8 to keep it.  In any
case it is not that different from RH9, which is in many aspects
better done than RH8, so updating is here a rather simple solution.
