If these packages have still a formal maintainer, you can either
propose them an updated package, so they can upload it; or else you
can convince them to orphan the package, and handle it as a QA upload

That's always a very good things to do qa upload. You can start from
this page  to find orphaned or up to adoption packages you might
start work on.

Well, upload to mentors.d.n and send a RFS here, as usual. I suggest
to write explicitly in the RFS email subject that's a QA upload.
