Packaged marked for removal -> last chance to adopt them!



The QA guidelines say that packages which have been orphaned longer
than 90 days are to be removed.  There are many packages listed in
the WNPP which are much older than this.  Debian has been growing
and growing, and it's time to clean out old packages from unstable.

Below is a listing of orphaned packages.  In 3 weeks, I will ask the
FTP master to remove them -- if you think one of the packages should
stay in Debian unstable, this is your chance to adopt them (you can
also adopt packages without being an official Debian developer).
See http://www.debian.org/devel/wnpp for a good explanation of
adopting packages.  Basically, you only have to change the title of
the bug from O: to ITA: (Intend to Adopt).

Note: possibly some packages are still listed as orphaned in the WNPP
pages even though the package has been adopted (because the adopter
forgot to close the WNPP bug) -- if you find such a package, please
close its WNPP bug; otherwise, the package might get removed.

Since some people thought the 90 day rule was too strict, I used the
following rules:

  * Packages orphaned more than 90 days and less than 180 days ago and
    which have no open bugs with severity higher than minor will be kept.
  * Packages orphaned 90 days ago with a bug open or a Standards-Version
    less than 3.0 (which would be a RC bug anyway) will be removed.
  * Packages orphaned more than 180 days ago will be removed in any case.

Again, these packages will be removed on Sun Feb  4 if no objections
are raised before then.
