Fwiw, I wouldn't mind if pkg-fdo and pkg-utopia would be merged (but I
don't have a good suggestion for a different name).
pkg-fdo afaics is pretty much dormant at this point, whereas pkg-utopia
is still actively used for stuff like dbus, network-manager, udisks,
upower, etc.

I've also CCed Simon, not sure if he read debian-gtk-gnome.
