(2) Dropped packages:

puzel told us about packages dropped from Factory. One really
interesting group of packages dropped was xsane and sane frontends. We
all agreed that these packages are really useful and should maintained
somewhere. So puzel proposed that he would maintain it in Contrib and if
he'll encounter any problems he wouldn't have time to solve, we will
help him.

You could also take over maintainer ship in Factory of those.
Johannes just has no time for them.

Well, xsane is in Packman, so IMHO we don't need to bother about it.

Why is that? xsane is/was in openSUSE so no need for that.

I have no idea why it is in Packman (but I guess it was there even before
it was dropped from Factory).

My intention was to 'save' those packages, so if some users really want
to have them, they can get them without compiling/packaging on their
own. Contrib was the way I choose.

According to sane-frontends: yes, I could take maintainership in
Factory, but as Daniel noted, having more packages in Contrib could
attract more people to contributing. And there were many other
packages moving from Factory to Contrib just because of this reason.

That's ridiculous. We can't remove packages that provide basic
functionality from Factory.

Neither of these packages provide basic functionality, AFAIK.

We'll soon end up with a unusable distro
if that trend continues. I wonder why there was no mail asking for a new
maintainer anyways.
