Orphaning most of my packages

The time is long since past to admit that I will *never* again have the
time to provide proper maintenance to my packages. Given the brief delay
in the freeze, hopefully someone can pick these up and get new versions
in with proper maintainers. 

I don't have time to provide sponsorship either; I will be around to
answer questions for the new maintainer, but you might wait a day or two
for a response (but usually more quickly than that.) I can provide a CVS
repo of the package history for all of these; send me an email (adopters
only, please).

I have submitted wnpp bugs for these; I've not uploaded versions with
the maintainer set to QA, I'll get around to that later(!) for any that
aren't adopted.

Bug#392665: O: nvi - 4.4BSD re-implementation of vi

Effectivley dead upstream. Needs some love for 8bit and unicode

Bug#392666: O: dgpsip -  Correct GPS location with DGPS signal from internet

Probably irrelevant now that selective availability is gone, but popcon
shows 32 installs, so maybe someone is actually using this. If noone
adopts, I'll ask for removal rather than re-assign to QA.

Bug#392671: O:  ee -  An "easy editor" for novices and compuphobics

Not dead upstream, but finished, I think.

Bug#392672: O: positron - synchronization manager for the Neuros Audio
Computer Python. Probably dead after v1.1. Pierre Habouzit has NMU'd a
version 1.1 upgrade and support for new python policy, see bug # 380895.

    system and Linus Torvalds claims to be trying to take over the
    world.       -- seen on the net
