I did some preliminary work for you ;)

The page Package_Cleanup is now redirected to 

I have moved the content of the former to the latter and reorganized it 
a bit.

I also added a link to your user page with a note that it should be 
merged with the table based on pkgstats.

All devs should feel free to edit, comment, etc. Note that you need to 
have sysop rights to edit DeveloperWiki pages.
