New tag needed for WNPP? [Was Re: ITO: rtf2latex (et al)]
I'm CCing -devel in case someone has anything else to say about this.

I think that's more or less the definition of 'ITO'. There's another
tag, 'O', with a different meaning, namely, the package is not being
maintained at all. There's even another one, 'W', withdrawn, meaning
the package has been pulled out of Debian proper (or contrib/non-free)
and moved intro project/orphaned. In the discussion regarding the move
of the WNPP database to the BTS noone suggested 'NMN' (New Maintainer
Needed -- better names are welcomed) which would be, IMO, a wishlist
bug agains WNPP instead of an important bug.
