1) upload a package with maintainer 'Unmaintained'
2) after N days/weeks/months (specified by release maint or someone else)
   the package is removed / sent to 'limbo'
   in the interim, once a week / month a mail is sent with the list of
   'condemned' packages.  If people are not interested in that time packages
   can be removed.  Perhaps a special for packages with a specific ARCH.
