17 OK, I was doubtful because when a package lacks maintainer, maybe it's
18 not fully tested and some bugs could be opened and, then, rarely fixed
19 (as they would be assigned to maintainer-needed). On the other hand, I
20 would hope that preserving those packages in "testing", their users
21 wouldn't expect it to be as "stable" and "properly maintained" as a
22 package marked "stable".
