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
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. :)
