There really is no need to iterate over the same point over and over

no one interested in packaging for Contrib. Everybody says its a good
idea and that somebody should do it but apparently nobody does.

The originally proposed idea - move selected packages from factory to
contrib - should help with this problem. It won't bring any really new
packages (at least in the beginning), but it can improve the Contrib
importance and visibility and help to establish the processes.

How about going through the list of dropped packages since 10.3 or 11.0?
Probably there are candidates (I know there is at least one I really
want to see in Contrib) before dropping even more from Factory ;-)

I suggest: Just start with some - e.g. 10 random - packages and get
CONTRIB rolling. We can easily add more but we need to start,

I am thinking about 100 packages or so from factory, that is ~10 packages per
one Packagers team member - it should be enough to keep the Contrib project on
Packagers radar ;)

And dropped packages probably are not the best idea. They were dropped for
some reason. I'd start with packages that do not have neccessarily to be in
factory but are easy enough so they were not dropped.
