    initial v1  
    1 Reopening this ticket. I think WordPress as a system has a responsibility to tell users whether a plugin is maintained or not. If we know that a plugin has been closed, we should disclose that to the users of that plugin, so they can find an alternative. We've been doing this on WordPress.org for quite a while now, where we only show the reason after 60 days (see [https://meta.trac.wordpress.org/browser/sites/trunk/wordpress.org/public_html/wp-content/themes/pub/wporg-plugins/inc/template-tags.php?marks=245-249#L236 the code]). I think it's time we give that feedback to users in the backend too, and try to reduce the number of sites which have unmaintained / zombie plugins running.
