I don't have that assumption, being an endorsed distro doesn't mean one
should stop work on it - on contrary this is WIP forever and we are
determined to it to stay that way. Being active and fixing bugs is not
the only criteria but it is the most important ones IMHO - if a distro
isn't active it should be moved in some Inactive/Dormant section because
that distro is not doing anyone favor and is also a security nightmare.

I will also use this mail as reply to other mails - thanks for ongoing
discussion and I again recommend to move inactive distros to some other
section. For having the discussion, I agree that we can have (at least)
one representative from all endorsed distros but what I also propose is
- greater community will always discuss this (awesome) but sometimes
some distro people will not have time to participate in all discussions-
is  that someone from FSF (Donald?) CC's directly all current delegates
from active distros on topic that reached point of need to be discussed
and solved by distros (aka higher priority topic). That way (at least
for me) we will not be stretched on many sides but also such ping would
get our attention and bring us in into discussion. Thoughts?
