I recently read a lot on Stackoverflow regaring packages not working. I often found, that the cause was that beginners and newcomers used “popular” packages which have already been abandoned or were not maintained since ages.
It would be really great to either flag those packages or throw a warning when adding these packages to your project.
Rules for warning could be:
- not maintained since 1 year and longer
- flagged as read-only on github
- voted by the community as “abandoned”
What do you think?
