Re: [SUMMARY/PROPOSAL] Orphaning another maintainer's packages - goal

People interested in salvaging an unmaintained package are discouraged by the

getting packages salvaged.

Thanks, this is much more clear now.

After more thoughts, I probably agree such a proposal.

Probably, Steve Langasek is right in that it shouldn't be such a big deal
to find few DDs to vote for the salvaging...

And if I understand well, this procedure is *on top* of what we have
currently for orphaning anyway (eg: QA team orphaning MIA maintainers,
and the tech. commity), right?
