Thanks for the clarification, Jean-Philippe.

On the broader issue, personally I'd prefer not to have non-maintained
packages on hackageDB (because their presence lowers people's expectations
of the whole collection) but others disagree on that point.  If we must
have them, they ought not to be marked as maintained.  It's not fair on
users, or on the person named as maintainer.
