I have 3270 marked as 'needs orphaning', someone (presumably the
maintainer) earlier replied to my mail saing so.
I suggest you contact the maintainer proposing comaintainership or
adopting the package and, in the unlikley case he fails to reply,
hijack the package.
ntop on the other hand seems to be resolved. No RC bugs open and the
sarge and sid versions are both 2:3.0-1 (dated 2004-05-19).
