This is such a cool thread!

Not only have you responsibly orphaned packages when you don't have time to
maintain them, but most of them were picked up very quickly!  And some have
picked up comaintainers almost immediately, which is even better!

(Sorry, I'm not picking any of them up.)

The ones which haven't been picked up either with ITAs or in this thread,
and which aren't lib*-perl or lib*-ruby, are:

* dlume
* fpm
* gxmms
* kipina
* revolution
* rxvt
* sendemail
* ssss
* wallpaper-tray

(There are quite a few more -perl and -ruby packages, but I'm not quite sure
which ones have been picked up.)

I will note that rxvt has 1234 popcon installs, so if anyone's going for
brownie points....

Bush admitted to violating FISA and said he was proud of it.
So why isn't he in prison yet?...
