I can understand very well, that you are not very happy about this. And I don't think anybody here took this decision lightly.

Real efforts is not something that can be define that simple, i think. It depends a lot on available resources as well.
However, I think we are doing exactly what you are asking for. With the pieces that we do not have enough people working on, we are getting out of the way, and will maintain it through our own gerrit.
For the builds we have actively people working on, we remain working upstream.
