Thanks for the review and tips for the future. I will try to create an
amended patch next time the situation should arise. I will also
remember to include a rationale.

When it comes to the rationale itself, I can add that when finding
packages that could be eligible for moving to [community], the license
is an important factor. Lacking a license search function, the only
available tool I know of would be "aurphan". While I like aurphan, it
would be nice to be able to do a similar search through the web

In any case, if the feature is not needed, it's understandable.
Stability and resistance to introduce new code or features is also a
valuable feature for a piece of software.
