Another thing I think is interesting: How many different maintainers are there for non-free packages. I.e., how many maintainers would be affected

I counted this recently and found 124 or similar. I did not count how many only have non-free add-ons to their main packages.

Someone mentioned as well as storage locations, BTS and PTS will be affected and it's a "major PITA" to our users. Of course, that's subjective, but many users are capable of using other storage locations and we should be able to complete Origin+Bugs support to deal with their most common ways of dealing with the BTS. That leaves the PTS and I don't know enough about that.
