Well, I knew what a "herd" means exactly per devmanual ;), but, in real
world, that "collection of packages" is really orphan (are like
maintainer-needed packages but, what is worse, out of radar as they are
not listed as orphan at all)

(Personally I completely disagree with that sense of "herd" but, as
looks the meaning is there since the beginning...)
