Yes that another possibility. I think the only way to handle 
RFPs which makes sense is to give a period of time (a year 
or so) and if the bug has not been retilted to ITP in this 
time delete the RFP. In a year many things (licenses too :) 
can change in software development so if someone is 
interrested in a piece of software he can write a wnpp 
again. If nothing changes in this period of time upstream is 
inacive and the software shouldn't be packaged.

VIM has two modes - the one in which it beeps 
and the one in which it doesn't -- encrypted mail preferred
