Last time I organised this was actually a bit of a disaster.   A bunch 
of packages were added by the community to be cleaned up but when it 
came time for TUs to review the list and make removals, not much got done...

The current system with emails to this list with brief explanations why 
packages should be removed is working well.  Why not just stick with that?
