Well, if someone would take over and fix these packages, I would totally agree with you. And I accepted a lot of submit requests or even maintainer requests already. The people behind these requests have my full respect and I'm very, very thankful for the work and time they spent.
But deleting others work because you want to "clean up" (what? for which reason?) is not the way to go in my eyes - and your arguments do not change my feeling.

As long as they are "build disabled", moving them "out of sight" makes no change (and no sense) at all.
But in OBS, you could of course request a new project called: "my 100% working packages" and start your work there. But, stop, isn't this project called Factory already? ;-)

IMHO for a very good reason. So I like to request that we just invest the time we waste here for the discussion into fixing the packages and everyone would be happy.

I would be more than happy if I get paid for the work you mention. Instead it's my work at SUSE that blocks me from fixing the packages in discussion.
Happy New Year,
