OK, how about

"Note that if the tool or script appears to be unmaintained - for example 
if we receive a bug report but get no response from the maintainer - then 
we reserve the right to remove the script outright. We will normally wait 
at least a month and make multiple attempts to contact the maintainer."

We could be more specific about making the multiple attempts from 
different email addresses but that seems excessively prescriptive.
