68     <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id5" id="abstract" name="abstract">Abstract</a></h1>
69 g2boojum 1.1 <p>To keep inactive GLEPs from lingering in a limbo state, Draft GLEPs that have
70     been inactive for more than 60 days and Accepted GLEPs that have been
71     inactive for over six months should be marked &quot;deferred&quot; due to inactivity
72     (and, presumably, lack of interest).</p>

75     <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id6" id="motivation" name="motivation">Motivation</a></h1>
76 g2boojum 1.1 <p>Right now a number of GLEPs have been in &quot;Draft&quot; status for as much as 11
77     months, with no obvious activity occurring to either submit the GLEP for
78     approval or to withdraw it as a bad idea. Similarly, although it has not yet
79     really been a problem, Accepted GLEPs also have the potential to linger
80     without any indication that they are moving forward toward being finalized.
81     Having a &quot;timeout&quot; period for GLEPs should spur GLEP authors to remain active
82     in either getting support for or finalizing GLEPs.</p>

85     <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id7" id="specification" name="specification">Specification</a></h1>
86 g2boojum 1.1 <p>If a Draft GLEP is inactive for more than 60 days or an Accepted GLEP is
87     inactive for more than six months, then it would be marked as &quot;deferred&quot; on
88     the main <a class="reference" href="http://glep.gentoo.org">GLEP page</a> <a class="footnote-reference" href="#id2" id="id3" name="id3">[1]</a>. Inactivity is defined simply as the GLEP author has
89     not contacted the GLEP editors with either an update or a request to submit
90     the GLEP for approval (in the case of a Draft GLEP) or a request that the GLEP
91     be marked final (in the case of an Accepted GLEP).</p>
92     <p>A GLEP that has been marked &quot;deferred&quot; may be reopened by request of the GLEP
93     author or a Gentoo manager, as long as that request also includes either an
94     update or a note submitting the GLEP for approval or finalization.</p>

99     find out how their GLEPs are progressing. This GLEP should help.</p>
