Re: Implementing my proposal for the organisation of QA

- take care of bugs reported against non-existing packages. This is
handled by firstname.lastname@example.org (Colin, Josip and me, with
Colin doing most of the work)
- take care of bugs when packages are removed from unstable.
Handled by email@example.com (me). Before a new release is
made, packages which were distributed with the last release and
are no longer found in the new one should be documented for the
release notes (and alternative packages be suggested). I will
hopefully do that for woody.

Please mention the scripts in pandora:/org/qa.debian.org/mia (plus the
README). It's true that most inactive maintainers are found during
BSP and fixing RC bugs; however, I think that the "MIA team" itself
should be rather small (2-3 people). I think Raphaël disagrees with
me here, though.

Please mention the scripts in pandora:/org/qa.debian.org/data/wnpp
(wnpp-lint and wnpp-publicize).
It would be nice if these tasks would be described properly and put on
the qa.d.o web site. The "About Quality Assurance" document there is
really out of date and it might be a good idea to use this task list
as an excuse to update it.
