They can be adopted by TUs only, or go to Unsupported if nobody wants them.
There was a big community repo cleanup in the past.
Not sure if we need another one right now, but feel free to name
orphans that you think need more care - and we can decide their future

In case of pygoocanvas - its a dependency of 'conduit' only which is
Unsupported, so if it is not a makedependency for some community
package - it's safe to move to Unsupported.
We could move pygoocanvas to Unsupported unless some TU is interested
in maintaining it.
