I can't speak for all libraries, but for the libraries I maintain, the
libraries my libraries depend on, and the libraries in trunk I use as
a release manager, trunk is "properly maintained". I'm also no seeing
a lot of complaints on the list about libraries on trunk not being
"properly maintained". That could change over time, of course, but
right now things don't look all that bad to me.
