Thanks for looking into this.

Two points:

- Shall we remove all 32b-bit only orphaned packages for which we don't
   get a maintainer until, say, end of August?

That seems reasonable, as long as there are exceptions for packages where
the lack of a 64-bit package is due to genuine porting difficulties.
libsigsegv was in that category until yesterday.  Another one I'm aware of
is ffcall.

I understand, but they are unmaintained.  So, who's going to check
if they are buildable as 64 bit packages?

I will look on them, just to complete the effort ;-)

But IMHO some should be killed anyway

aewm++ ccdoc cramfs mtd ioperm xgraph xsri xview rxvt
Sounds like a plan.  These and all mingw packages.

Jari (the not-maintainer) just uploaded aewm++.
I updated the list, accordingly.

as they are well dead upstream, and eventually also

nfrotz scsh wtf logiweb

for the same reason.

As for logiweb, I have still hopes.  Yaakov uploaded Klaus' SSH key
on 2015-01-27.  Unfortunately Klaus never followed up after that,
but I just pinged him (and CCed him now).

These have surely porting issue

ffcall flexdll xwinwm

like xemacs and pdftk so they belong to a different category
