You're right, I'll leave it to the active committers to decide. And this
discussion should be happening on the tm-dev list so they see it.

Does anyone want these contributions to keep RSE alive?
I don't think the opinion of others should be used as a criterion here. The
thing is that if Nick, Rob or whoever have authored good patches, it's still
better to contribute them into the project, independently of what others want
to do or not with RSE. No-one is allowed to claim that a project is dead if it
still has contributors/contributions. If the patches are proposed and seem good
but don't get merged for other non-technical reason and contributors are still
interested in getting those patches merged, then it's worth an escalation plan
to turn contributors into committers.
In general, having people authoring commits can be seen as a sign that at least
those who did the work probably have interest in authoring the commits, ie
keeping RSE alive in that case. So to me, whenever there is a contribution, it
shows that the project can still be perceived as alive and that no other
discussion is necessary before applying the typical EDP processes to make sure
project can be as successful as contributors can make it.
To sum up, we don't need to discuss RSE state any more, the patches authored by
Rob and Nick can be a sufficient sign that RSE is still alive and we just have
to make sure the efforts stored on a GitHub branch can be turned into activity
in the origin code base if committers want it.
