Hm, sure, I understand that, but could you clarify which of the cases above 
(1st: 6 listed packages or 2nd: cdiff) you're replying to?  I'm having 
problems inferring the context.

To clarify: cdiff was just a side note.  What I wanted to point out that 
Warren's message said "removal of packages from rawhide who have been without 
owners since prior to Fedora 8", but the listed packages included several 
packages that had owners until _after_ Fedora 8, so someone could be 
interested in verifying that the list indeed includes packages that it was 
intended to include.  I don't care that deeply, I did orphan those packages 
anyway...
