net-mgmt/ourmon: can it be converted back to regular port from interactive?

I see from the log that your port was converted to an interactive port 3 years ago. We're making a push to eliminate interactive ports. Can you explain why it's technically required to be interactive? And if it's technically possible to convert it back to a regular-style port?
Hi Charlie, since ourman will be deprecated soon due to lack of stage support anyway, should we just deprecate it now? I checked the bug tracker, there are no PRs pending so maybe you aren't interested in this port anymore?

net-mgmt/ourmon: Reset maintainer and deprecate interactive port

the same expiration date of the other unmaintained interactive port has

Deprecated and due to be removed on 20 August with other unmaintained interactive ports.
