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

 If a package has gotten very stale, and nobody has taken up
 maintainence, isn't that a pretty good indication that nobody is
 using it anyhow?

 What about taking packages like that and removing the binary .deb,
 but leave the last source package in the archive...  there should be
 a way through some interface such as "aptitude" or a web page to find
 it by searching, perhaps.  But this only for software deemed worth a
 read of the source code or potentially useful in real life.

 We must admit: there is plenty of cruft in the archive.  A lot of
 stuff nobody really uses.
