> gnome-system-tools (in unstable)        replace with new package from AUR and move to Extra?
+1 for updating this. I can take it if noone else wants.

> libesmtp        unused lib
required by esmtp and balsa - I'll take them all in community

> libgdamm        unused lib
move to community, I'll adopt it (required by glom)

> libpixman       unused lib
just curious - is pixman from Testing the same but updated?

other packages that are required by community packages:
glitz - by gnustep-back and xgl
metakit - by gourmet
shapelib - by gpsmanshp and gen2shp
