Given they're shutting down development, if anything we should deprecate this from the repo, not update it and then have to just deprecate it later.

As long it is still in repo, let's have an updated one. Probably later in the future someone will fork it and continue the development.

Why not transfer ownership to someone else?

Frankly, I don't want to put the work into vetting a new maintainer or transferring ownership to an organization. Stuff like this scares me.
Forking is nice because it allows the new maintainer to establish their own trust and reputation within the community. It's also nice because it requires zero involvement from myself. I acknowledge that this is inconvenient for the average RTV user. Change is always annoying, especially when you have no control over it.

I can't guarantee that will be the case regarding a fork. If there is evidence of an active fork then we can look into reincluding it. Until then, it is going to be deprecated.
