You say that Ivan is no longer maintaining any of these packages.  It seems
to me that these packages are therefore already de facto orphaned, and there
is no dispute here that needs the Technical Committee to rule.  Can you
confirm that this is the case?

If you are certain that Ivan is not interested in maintaining these
packages, it's ok for you to orphan them directly by filing bugs against the
'wnpp' pseudopackage.
