Just a more accurate number: It's 230 as of today.

djpig@feynman:/tmp$ cat by_inst | grep -v ^# | perl -ne 'next if /^--/;($rank,$name,$inst,$vote,$old,$recent,$nofiles,$maintainer)=split(/\s+/,$_,8);print if ($inst == 0) && $maintainer && ($maintainer !~ /Not in sid/);' | wc -l

Changing the requirement to $inst < 2 increases that to 600, however...
