A small clarification, I have adopted nuget because it is required by one of
my packages. If monodevelop gets dropped, then it would be a requirement just
to that package.

As for mono, it is a requirement for some of my packages and I use it indirectly
on a daily basis. Both me and Levente agreed to co-maintain it because it is
indeed a very problematic package. We plan to upgrade it soon, probably on staging

As for the remaining orphans, I will have a look later this week to make sure they
are not optional dependencies or would break something else, because the dependency
chain with mono can get messy.

Can you let me do the drop or ping me on IRC/email before doing so?
