Hi Ingo

That is sad, I would love it to happen… The management of the userless
packages on specialised arches is a time sink that in addition
poisons the relationships between package maintainers and porters
(or at least between me and the porters). I really think that we should
be more user-driven for these issuses: If users want some categories of
packages, let's work hard to provide to them. If nobody shows up...
let's concentrate on other issues.

Have a nice day,
