Well, yes.  Check the last mails sent to debian-qa, there are only
very few mails that are not automatically generated and are more
or less originated at the bug tracking system.

In contrary the list was initiated to assure the quality of Debian
and not to end up as bag for orphaned packages.  I understand the
reason for this and that the people who initially planned to work
on this didn't find time ot work on this.

When I find time, I occasionally pick orphaned packages that I
consider useful and correctly orphan them by fixing the remaining
bugs that I'm able to fix - or take over the package myself.
