I asked to take ownership of hping2, which is needed by nagios-plugins,
which was (AFAIK) a month or longer ago. I had rebuild the package,
and after seeing it as orphan again, I've removed it from the orphan
list and updated the owners file. I need to look how to change things
in bugzilla, i do not know if i have permissions to change all
information there. I did reply to one bugzilla report that asked for a
rebuild, which i did.

I'm not sure if I have all permissions to change things as neeeded to become
the package owner in bugzilla. I'll read up on the wiki.
