It depends on what you understand under the term maintenance. With the
exception of MailHost (which got a zope.sendmail based refactoring)
none of these products have seen any non-cosmetic changes in the past
five years.

So if you are looking for ongoing development and improvements, you
were in the wrong place for a while now. If you are looking for stable
and non-changing code, you'll get that. All of these products work
with the last Python 2 version (2.7) so there should be some years
ahead in which they'll work unchanged.

I wouldn't expect any of them to be ported to Python 3 anymore,
though. But in the end that is up to the users of these products -
there's just no magic community around anymore that will work on them
for you. But that's been true for Zope 2 at large for some years now.
