Actually I only meant that it be moved to wnpp if the maintainer was
contacted yet showed little interest in maintaing the package or stated
he/she was no longer going to do so and had failed to notify any one. That
was only an indirect possibility, the main point was to get the bugs fixed
by finding out the status in an organized manner.
