FWIW the current list of package is: "As long as there's interest the software will stay alive" is one of the main tenets of Free Software. Consequently, IMHO, as long as there's people willing to maintain it, it shouldn't be removed regardless of how old it is. => If the current maintainer is no longer interested others should get the change to step forward and take over, and only if noone steps up it should be removed -- Cheers, cobaco (aka Bart Cornelis)
