Since git head sees a lot of developmen people kept emailing me, that
the packages won't build or worse, they do build and just do not work or
Typical approach is to remove all five packages and build from the
ground up.
Dependencies between their libraries change often.
Besides this the devs already contacted me, that people also keep
bugging them.

Of course people should know better and I can just disown the package.
