One advantage is the nature of free software...
I have taken care of some add-ons abandonned by the devellopers
and I will try to take care of some more... if I have time, and
essentially knowledge to that...

That depends entirely on who created a given add-on, and why, and
with what intended audience.
What people need to understand is that it is always possible that
an add-on may be abandoned/orphaned, and particularly those whose
history is of the "it was created for my personal use and began
making the rounds" type.
And there are developers of some very popular add-ons who have
never even given a thought to a transition plan whereby the add-on
would be handed off to someone else were they to decide to want to
walk away from it.
These pieces of software are gifts to the community, but they
don't carry an obligation that the person that gifted them must
remain dedicated to that add-on until the day they die. There are
occasions, and it's typically not for commercially produced
add-ons, where an add-on will be abandoned.
