Another point - I've always wanted to take over some orphaned package(s),  
but I wanted to first, learn the basic stuff with the packages I wanted to  
do (that's more-or-less done), and second, get my system in a somewhat  
more usable state (currently, the main problem is much too full disks,  
which makes development a real pain, and which will probably change  
shortly after the release - I'll then be able to get rid of buzz [which I  
need because our servers still run it] and rex, because I'll install bo on  
those servers).
