I have adopted a bunch of perl packages from xterminus, and I checked 
all the remaining ones for those that are dependencies of other 
community packages. The result is as follows:

perl-convert-asn1 is a dependency of perl-ldap (maintained by Sergej)
perl-crypt-simple > checkgmail (dtw)
perl-curses and perl-curses-ui > yfklog and yfktest (bfinch)
perl-net-ipv6addr < gresolver (Sergej)

So Sergej, dtw and bfinch, I suggest that you adopt the above pkgs ;-)

I think all other packages previously maintained by xterminus can now be 
orphaned and moved to [unsupported]. BTW, is there a way to do this 
other than the pedestrian manner described in the wiki?

Best wishes to all fellow TUs for the new year!
