Wasn't genius still maintained? It's on my list to-update applications when
I get to updating gnome packages again

I'll take it, it doesn't need any maintenance as it never gets updated. Not
sure about it future though, but we'll see by the time GNOME decides to
replace it (there's a discussion about sounds on desktop-devel-list)

> libgnomesu	gksu and kdesu provide same functionality
AFAIK it's "needed" by gnome-system-monitor, but it could be libgksu that is
required by that thing. I'll maintain it if there's a package in extra that
needs it.

> pam_ldap	Description: The pam_ldap module provides the means for
I use it on my arch box. If nobody wants to maintain it, I'll do.

> pdns-ldap	unused lib, might be included in pdns (currently orphaned)
> pdns-mysql	unused lib, might be included in pdns (currently orphaned)
> pdns-pgsql	unused lib, might be included in pdns (currently orphaned)
> pdns-recursor	Description: PowerDNS recursor
I'll update powerdns soon and merge the pdns-* things in it. Pdns-recursor
stays standalone. Don't remove it, powerdns is pretty useless without a
recursor for most people.

> perl-email-date	unused perl module. To Jan: You added it to the repo
It was added as dependency to some other perl module. I don't add perl
modules for fun.

> vbetool	Description: vbetool uses lrmi in order to run code from
Used by pm-utils AFAIK.
