please do this - and please make lintian available so that each
maintainer can test his package, if he like. Two-four weeks after the
availability of lintian you can/should start filing bug reports
against the packages.

That's a good idea to find and mark the orphaned packages, so that our
new maintainers can find useful packages for them to work on
easily. Some (4?) weeks before our code freeze, we should move all
orphaned packages to project/orphaned.
