Re: Removing orphaned packages from testing

Isn't this equivalent to stating that being unmaintained is a release
critical bug in a package?  And if it is, would it not be better to
just register new RC bugs to document the fact, and allow those
interested in those packages a place to add their comments about it?

Packages with RC bugs are removed regularly from testing, and thus
this approach should give the same result as targeting unmaintained
packages specially.

Personally, I agree that unmaintained packages are unfit for release,
and thus should have RC bugs registered against them to keep them out
of testing.  :)

Happy hacking,
