I never claimed that.

I claimed that by the strictest assessment, about sixty libraries are
undermaintained. This might mean bugs open for more than five years,
unmerged pull requests for over a year, that sort of thing.

Some undermaintained libraries have active maintainers who commit new
code weekly or more. They may not send any of that to master branch,
and/or not bother with bug fixes in master branch.
