Most definitely accepting patches and fixing bugs when they show up. I
don't think anyone is deeply involved in fixing long standing issues
that take a large amount of work, but we've been releasing bug fixes on
a regular basis up to 2.18.0 at least. No reason why we should stop
doing that now.

I have always had the impression that deprecated means not encouraging
new users, but it seems we should clarify that since there seems to be
confusion around this issue.

That would be the right thing to do.
