It is not good for there to be commits to a project with no one to oversee them, particularly
if they may be consequential or controversial. Though I believe that the technical answer
is that the timing of resources closing down depends on whatever volunteer takes the steps
to initiate the sequence of Attic requests with Infra, you should not plan to make changes
to the project after it has been retired.

This seems to have gone on for a long time.  Even if the VOTE is not tidied up or the promised
doc commits landed, since DeviceMap does not have a functional PMC, the Board may consider
retiring the project regardless a week from tomorrow. The community has received ample notice.
