And as I learnt yesterday, some of the ones "sitting" are still there
because the maintainer hasn't reacted in weeks to mail from ftpmaster
pointing out obvious problems with the package.
Perhaps it'd be nice in the long term add a column with a short note
enumerating the problems, or to CC the ITP bug the mail sent to the
maintainer. This way, if a maintainer goes MIA, other interested
people can know that the ball is in the maintainer's roof, not in
ftpmasters', and offer to help.
