I would suggest we exclude NMUs from "No uploads for > 365 days" requirement. The person who want to salvage the package probably should also wait for two weeks after initial public contact, then send another public email, wait for another two weeks, send another public notification email before doing actual salvaging efforts (moving packaging repo, uploading packages, etc).
