Supported: Someone is actually paid to look after this.
Maintained: Someone actually looks after it.

Both of those apply and I would argue that, given the use of the word
'actually' in those definitions, 'Maintained' is better than 'Supported'.

I think that 'Supported' is a superset of 'Maintained'.

In general the list looks like specifies the 'status' from maximum support to
nothing. Supported > Maintained > Odd Fixes > Orphan > Obsolete ?
