No, but this time we announce them on the FC5Status page as officially
orphaned, remove them from devel after FC-5 branch is available, and then
move on. Remember, we've used those FCXStatus pages like that before.

Well, in owners.list I'm in Cc. I've taken over wesnoth quite some time
ago from Panu and continued up to their first final release (1.0.x
series). But that's it. It remains a potentially orphaned package.
Just recently, however, somebody has raised interest in taking it.
I just don't remember who it was. ;)
