Orphaned Packages in Packages List

I am trying to understand the process for managing packages that are listed on the CygWin Packages list page. 

This specifically refers to https://cygwin.com/packages/package_list.html.

In reading the CygWin Package Contributor's Guide, it indicates that packages without active maintainers are removed from distribution. Does that just mean it is not included as part of the base installation of CygWin, or is there also a process for removing these from the Package List site?
