Orphaned packages have no current maintainer, or are maintained
by the qa group, while adoptable packages have a maintainer who is willing
to hand the package off to someone else. For adoptable packages, you can
usually just write the current maintainer and ask to take over. I'm not
sure what the procedure is for orphaned packages.
