In general the latter is preferrable.

If it is not well maintained in upstream, we can keep it in our
contrib/ hierarchy forever, but given that nobody among us seems to
be motivated and qualified enough to be its true maintainer, and no
user seems to be contacting us about its bugs, it is just between
letting it wither over there or in our contrib/, which does not make
much of a difference, I would think.
