Obsolete data in "http://www.debian.org/devel/wnpp/being_packaged"


Ehh, I'm no expert in maintaining, but when a package is in preperation for over
than 800 days, something tells me that I won't be seeing this package anytime 
soon. Some of the maintainers probably started working on the package and never 
finished... Shouldn't those obsolete and misleading entries be removes? 
Here are some examples:
* changesys: newsgroup ordering tool, 1086 days in preparation. 
* dexpire: expire INN articles, 854 days in preparation.
* gradebook: teachers class gradebook program, 684 days in preperation.
* gnudl: GNU Data Language, 812 days in preparation.

But I think you get the point. Maybe each package in preperation should have
an expiry date. This problem exists in all of the www wnpp sections. 
Expiriation seems nice...
