I don't understand why you want to remove things that are not actively supported any more? The fact that no-one currently plans to making changes in those parts doesn't make that they need to be removed. RSE is a mature project, and in its current state, it provides satisfaction to some users, and I believe it could easily keep on providing value without changing a single line of code nor doing any rebuild. The project is still useful independently of whether it has active contributors or not.

This may be the case if you are considering a project in isolation, however we are deciding if TM should part of a simultaneous release. Being part of the simultaneous release means that "projects must work together in any combination of any install." This requires a degree of testing at least, as well as fixing bugs if any problems are encountered. If no-one has agreed to undertake this level of support, then I don’t see how the project can meet the mandatory requirements for a simultaneous release.

Which is why I've asked *what* kind of bugfixes etc. RSE have received and is expected to need so we can find someone to take this over.

I and others already said we would like to help - but noone have responded yet (I assume Thanksgiving is stealing most US based people's attention ;)
