This is exactly the problem. By your common sense, we should not
have released 2011.12 at all, and probably just stopped releasing

You say - rightly so - that becoming active would cost you lots of
hours. Staying active costs _us_ lots of hours.
Sure, I can apply common sense here, too: stop the loss of hours,
cut the expenses. Hope that someone else will take over.

Might just do that.
