Upcoming removal of orphaned packages



There are currently about 200 orphaned packages, many of which have been
on WNPP for quite a long time and some with RC bugs.  I intend to request
the removal of the following packages in two weeks unless a package has
been adopted by someone until then.  If you want to keep one of the
following packages, please make sure to
  - change the title of the bug from O: to ITA: as described on
    http://www.debian.org/devel/wnpp
  - make an upload to the archive, change the Maintainer: field to you,
    fix as many bugs as possible, also check for new upstream releases,
    etc.
  - Make sure to close the WNPP bug in your upload.

If you cannot make an upload for some reason (e.g., you need a sponsor),
then contact me privately.  However, unless there is a good reason, an
upload should happen within the next 2 weeks.

Below is the listing of packages.  If you want to know the rules used to
compile this list, look at the end of this posting.  Again, if you want
to keep any of them, make sure to upload within the next 2 weeks.
