Many. While cleaning up the ITPs/RFPs I asked many packagers about the
status of their package and got quite often a "package is more or less
ready, but I'm waiting of DAM-approval because I don't want the hassle
of another sponsored package", or, what's worse a "package was ok some
time ago, but as Debian doesn't want me I stopped fixing it".
