Thank you for your help in trying to get the app-doc/repodoc package
back to live :-)

I've found some information on this package:

1. I've contacted Fernando Pereda (ferdy), one of the authors of
   repodoc. He told me (as expected) that this package is no longer
   maintained. He recommends to find out if the translatos are 
   currently using this package (seems very reasonable).
   Besides, the package is not very secure, since it allows to run
   commands by using a specially modify doc.
   It is slow and the technologies used (bash and sed) are not the
   proper ones to manage XML.

2. I've pinged the gentoo-translators maillist [1] to find
   translators who are using this package. I've got only one
   negative answer in a week or so.

3. I've taken a look at the package's unresolved bugs:
   197617 - Seems tough to fix, according to yoswink and neysx
            comments.
   297946 - I've posted a comment [2] in this bug. No answer at
            the moment.
   297947 - Haven't check yet.
   299753 - Seems easy to fix.

So, IMO you can mark it for removal.

Regards.
