We can start off incredibly generous, only abandoning patches that havn't been touched in a year. But other projects (such as HHVM) will close open patch sets with three weeks of inactivity. It's not like the patches are lost, abandon just means its not going anywhere. Anyone who wants to can restore the patch set.
