A few comments:

-Before moving a package to unsupported, make sure it is not a depends or 
makedepends of another community packages.  Several packages in your list 
fall in this category.

-Keep gpsdrive in community. It's Damir's (a dev) package. He hasn't 
adopted it yet.

-About the e17 stuff, a forum user (reverie, I think) used to have a 
popular e17-cvs personal repo. I don't know if he's still maintaining it 
but, if he's interested in becoming a TU and you want to sponsor and vote 
him in, he could move his e17-cvs package in community to replace the 
orphaned e17 snapshots.
