Request for help and opinions: Rebuilding and basic checking for orphans



Hi!

we still have a lot of orphans in extras/development/ that will remain
in FE5. For a list see
http://www.fedoraproject.org/wiki/Extras/FC5Status
and look out for packages owned by "extras-orphan_AT_fedoraproject.org"

Well what do we want do with them?
a) just leave them there
b) check them and remove those that are broken and are not required by
other programs 
c) rebuild the arch packages, check them afterwards and remove the
broken ones

I'd suggest c) for arch packages and b) for noarch packags. Objections?
Anyone interested it helping there? I would suggest this scheme if the
answer is "yes":

- Add your name after some packages owned by
extras-orphan_AT_fedoraproject.org on 
http://www.fedoraproject.org/wiki/Extras/FC5Status

- Rebuild it in case it's an arch package

- Do a quick check of the resulting binary if it works in general. If it
didn't build or is a noarch package check the old one in the repo. 

- Remove it from the rebuild list on
http://www.fedoraproject.org/wiki/Extras/FC5Status
If it does not work and can be removed safely (e.g. no other packages
require it) place a remove request on above wiki page (that section is
near the top).
