​Yes it does. But could you please tell which ones you're talking about ?

Also worth noting here, is that a project not seeing much development
doesn't automatically equate to a project with no users and the mailing
lists are the easiest way for a user to reach out for support.
​But of course, if you know of any obvious cases then it totally makes
sense to clean them up.
