That's the current state of things.

Everything other than opencpn can have more suitable teams as they are
generic packages, nothing GIS specific. unarr is a compression software,
nothing GIS specific about that. wx{svg,curl} are part of the WX
graphics stack, again nothing GIS specific about it.

Maintaining dependencies for GIS packages in the team is fine to avoid
having a different team involved. As long as they didn't have a history
in another team and that team is still functional.

The three dependencies of opencpn will be orphaned when opencpn is no
longer maintained, as there will be no one left in the team to care for
them. In a more suitable team it is more likely that another member will
be willing to take over maintenance.
