Package removal or adoption
I am copying the games teams since I am a "member" and am currently
focusing on orphaned or unmaintained games. In case anyone there wants
to weigh in as well.
I am looking a several of the games type packages that are orphaned or
unmaintained and I am trying to understand Debian's "policy" with
regards to removal. Here are two examples: nettoe and xbattle.
What is the criteria for keeping these packages? I guess that according
to BTS they are "bug-free" but in the case of say xbattle, they are
un-developed upstream, don't seem to have much of a following (according
to popcon). Is it preferred that they stay in the archives? If so,
should I pick them up for the games team or just leave them out there as
Any input would be greatly appreciated.
