  Here are some initial results from a recent dump of the DB:


1) packages which are marked 'out of date' but the last action date [1] 
is < 2009


2) maintainers with last action date across all owned packages < 2009


3) packages owned by maintainers from the previous query



Lists 1 and 3 overlap, so we have between 1000 and 1500 packages to check.

I'd suggest waiting a week or 2 to give people a chance to look over 
these lists and raise objections. Afterwards we could either orphan 
these packages in the DB itself (if our admins agree) or start going 
through these packages manually.

Any ideas? Objections?


[1] last action date is either the date of the last modification, or if 
a package has never been modified the date of submission
