That doesn't sound good :( but then they don't make sense even as

You can try obtaining maintainership of them, if they are as broken as
all that.
If they have an active maintainer who is slacking on the job, then try
discussing things in the package comments, hopefully they will either
listen to feedback or hand over maintenance to you.

As for the nonexistent ones, do you have plans to package them yourself? :)
