As above, there were plans to introduce a cron job into the CVS module
that "disabled" cvs accounts (and an appropriate e-mail was to be
sent) that hadn't witnessed any activity for X months. Any projects
that were associated with disabled accounts were to be deemed
abandoned. This tackles the issue more from a "target absconding
maintainers" rather than "target unmaintained projects" perspective.
This also keeps things uncomplicated and minimises drupal.org related
code in the module.
