Please don't do that. See developers reference 7.4 for how to handle
this properly. You should not orphan the packages yourself but gather
all the necessary information and forward it to -qa, where tbm usually
answers almost instantly to this type of questions.
NMUs aren't an insult, they're not an attack, and they're
not something to avoid or be ashamed of.
