For a variety of reasons, I have to entirely give up involvement in a
number of packages. I've already tried to find new primary
maintainers without success, but I really can't justify any time
spent on these packages any longer, so I must orphan them ASAP, and
hopefully, someone picks them up...

emerald (compiz-fusion alternate windowing thingamajig)
emerald-themes (themes for the above)
ganglia (cluster monitoring software)
numpy (numerical python)

I've also got the following packages for which I've yet to solicit
new maintainers for that I am also intending to orphan Real Soon Now:

conman (console management software)
connect-proxy (helper to use ssh through socks/squid proxy)
dircproxy (detachable irc proxy)
powerman (power management software)

I'll keep myself on the cc for bugzillas for all of the above, and
will try to help with any bugs filed, personal free time permitting.
Most of these are relatively low on time investment required to
maintain them, but volume adds up, particularly given that I only
actually use two of these packages on any sort of regular basis these
days (conman and dircproxy).
I can take dircproxy, since I use it all the time...

Much appreciated. Not much to report on dircproxy, upstream is mostly inactive most of the time, occasionally posts an updated beta (like, once every year and a half). I know there's one patch in the fedora build to fix a crash on receiving a zero-length message that I don't believe has made its way back upstream (my fault, forgot about it 'til now).

Five down, three to go... C'mon people, you know you want emerald and emerald-themes... connect-proxy is dead-simple, but dunno how many people actually have use for it (I did 3 years ago, notsomuch anymore...).

Just for the record (after reading http://cvs.fedoraproject.org/viewcvs/rpms/connect-proxy/devel/connect-proxy.spec?rev=1.3&view=markup ) shouldn't %source be http://www.meadowy.org/~gotoh/ssh/connect.c rather than the filename that is used now ?
