Re: An alarming trend (no it's not flaimbait.) (fwd)

	Ok, here is something to look at. How many NEW packages are there in 
the last 2 months? How many of them could have been saved for later due to an 
alternate allready existing? How many don't add a whole lot of value to debian?

	Instead of many new packages, why not make people pick up the orphaned 
stuff, and find replacements or adopt packages that have been DOA upstream?

	NOTE: I haven't looked at this kind of stats before, nor do I know how 
to find this kind of information. dwn used to list at least 10 to 30 NEW 
things per week. and meanwhile the orphan count rose quickly...
