Well, I'd like to extend the point and suggest based on linux kernel
maintainer file:
An entry shall include the plugin name and

Descriptions of section entries:
P: Person
M: Mail patches to: FullName <address at domain>
W: Web-page with status/info
S: Status, one of the following:
   Supported:   Someone is actually paid to look after this.
   Maintained:  Someone actually looks after it.
   Odd Fixes:   It has a maintainer but they don't have time to do
                much other than throw the odd patch in. See below..
   Orphan:      No current maintainer [but maybe you could take the
                role as you write your new code].
   Obsolete:    Old code. Something tagged obsolete generally means
                it has been replaced by a better system and you
                should be using that.
