Orphaned packages list debian-qa as maintainer. That means all bug reports
go to debian-qa. There are several people that take care of these packages
and try to fix bugs (e.g. the recent security problems in ntop).

When you say these packages are non-interesting: There's noone who wants
to maintain them at the moment. Does this mean that there are no users of
these packages?

A "No" uttered from deepest conviction is better and greater than a
"Yes" merely uttered to please, or what is worse, to avoid trouble.
