[fedora.us] unmaintained packages

Dark clowds at the sky...

We're facing the problem of unmaintained packages. E.g. Snort which
was last built for Red Hat Linux 9 on 23-Apr-2003 and since then has
neither been updated nor rebuilt for Fedora Core.

Or cfengine [1], which has binary builds of a security update waiting
in the "pending" repository [2] since 2004-08-16, but nobody
(including the package developer) doing the verification/approval step
to get this published.

Anybody interested in taking over these packages?

I have the feeling that there may be more packages in such a state.
If you know some, I'd like to know. Or file a bug report, please.

There's no requirement for packages to be the bleeding edge very
latest upstream versions. But unmaintained/desolate packages, which
are not available after a distribution upgrade, should be dealt with
in some way.
