A package maintained by QA has been orphaned. That means there isn't a
maintainer. If someone's feeling energetic and interested they may work
on the bug, but if not the package will simply be removed from the next
release if it is too buggy. Setting the maintainer to debian-qa doesn't
mean that a package that no one cared enough about to maintain will
suddenly get a lot of attention; instead, it's the last stop before the
package is dropped.
