To be fair, I have notified every package maintainer that has been added
to NonGNU ELPA, to inform them of how (NonGNU) ELPA works, what they
should remember if they are interested in being part of the repository.

Sadly a few have not responded yet, mostly because the projects are
quasi dead, others have asked to be removed temporarily, but most have
responded positively and are interested in cooperating.
