Can somebody please explain again, what does it mean "dead upstream"?
Since the sources are available, I thought we should keep it.
Is the policy "remove the broken package - if someone knows how to fix
this, they will upload a fixed package" or "let it be, maybe somebody
someday will post a patch"?
