We don't really label as active or inactive, but rather contributors and past 
contributors, which in the past was diferentiatied as being an active 
community member (or not).  A good example is Chris Kings-Lynne. He did the 
work for drop column, which is code that will likely be around forever, but 
he started his own consulting business (http://kkl.com.au/) and no longer 
focuses on PostgreSQL development (and does not particpate in the mailing 
lists); so he is on the "past contributor" list.
