If no developer wants to maintain them in [extra] and no TU wants to 
maintain them in [community], then these packages are not important as 
defined bt the people who actually do work around here.  And it is the 
people who do work that determine what the distro is...  So if you want 
to change that, step up and become a TU and maintain some packages.
