[development] unmaintained modules listing

I don't have access to perform a task like this, and was wondering if someone could implement a simple solution like this one way or another? I'd love to get a list of modules (so that I can select a few basic ones while I get experience) to port them to 4.7.

One of them that I have noticed that doesn't work on 4.7 (at least when I last downloaded it) was nodewords, but I think it is maintained, so I don't want to just jump in and maintain modules with active maintainers.

I am on a roll now - motivated, because I begin to understand this complexity, and I don't want to lose that motivation, so if someone can do this today sometime, I can perhaps port a module or two tonight...

Well, here is such a list based on the "Show last 5 nodes by user"

    $result = db_query("SELECT n.created, n.title, n.nid, n.changed
    FROM node n INNER JOIN project_projects p ON n.nid = p.nid
    WHERE n.uid = 51123
    ORDER BY n.changed
    $output .= "<div class=\"item-list\"><ul>\n";
    $output .= node_title_list($result);
    $output .= "</ul></div>";
    return $output;

Khalid has some good (but more complex) ideas on the process.
