5 I've learned with first-person experience that no metadata doesn't means that

7 So maybe it's better said to developers: if you maintain something *please*
8 add a metadata, or update it, so that who looks at bugs know who to ask to.

12 Well maybe we can have a way to define "latest portage version" for removed
13 package (a tag on cvs?) so that someone can prepare a weekly tarball of
14 removed packages waiting for new maintainers or so on.
