The Document Foundation is one of the main sponsors of the ODF (Open Document Format), and LibreOffice is the main implementation of ODF. We do not officially represent ODF, which is owned and maintained by OASIS, although we are probably the main ODF advocates. The Python packages you mention have not been developed within the ODF main project, and as such are not supported by OASIS. While I agree about the noise created by those packages, issues should be directed to their respective owners (developers).

I'm not sure if this is the correct list for my question. But don't you represent the OpenDocument format?

Looking around in the web I can find a lot of Python packages for reading and writing files in OpenDocument format. Based on the last commit date and the count of Issues and RPs, all of them seem unmaintained and out-dated.

Are you aware of an active project offering a Python package to write and read OpenDocument format files?
Do you officially support such a project?

Are you aware of the problem with lot of orphaned Python packages? IMHO this violates the intention of OpenDocument. The packages are outdated buggy etc. It is better to have none of that packages instead of having buggy ones. All the projects should be "collected" and validated by the foundation.
