I still say forget that list. It has 2 major problems.
1. The suggestions to move a package in community when we don't even know
    if a TU is willing top adopt it are bad. The community repo doesn't
    need more orphaned packages.
2. If a dev is willing to maintain a package in extra, why should we force
    him to move his package to community/unsupported? For example, we
    are not moving the games to community. This was all discussed before.

If you want to work on a repo cleanup, ask for sysop privileges for 
the wiki and update the orphaned packages list: 

You can add a section for the old broken apps (kde3 apps that no longer 
build, achessclock could go there too, perhaps the old games).
