Currently (22/04/18) we have 10,980 extension keys registered in the TYPO3 Extension Repository, having 3,506 extensions with no upload. So, 32% of all extension keys are reserved by their owners without using them. Since two years, every owner gets a notification about an extension key which is unused since one year. The owner has the possibility for 30 days to keep the extension key or release it to the community.
My suggestion: As an extension owner you have 3 months to upload a version for your extension key, otherwise the extension key will be removed and therefore released to be used by the community again.
- No extension keys can be hold back any more
- No ask for keeping unused extension keys
