Good. But. There are too many things to be renamed:


i.e. bugrports on sponsorship-requests and wnpp packages alone with
projects on mentors and  sourceforge sites. What is right way to do all
this renaming?

It would be a nice behavior, if maintainer  leaving Debian will take
care about removal his own package after some period of inactivity.

I don't like this idea. It take a lot of time to find needed software in
such archive before including ppa into apt.sources. Most of users won't
dig into such huge heap. It is better to use for this purpose dedicated,
but still shared, united) archive. The http://mentors.debian.net/debian/
is good candidate.

I agree, naming is important problem not only for Debian packages, but
at all in our life and technology.
