It says here:


      Packages, which need a new maintainer (orphaned packages). A
      package may need to be dropped from the distribution when it
      contains security vulnerabilities, gets out-of-date too much
      and/or becomes incompatible with build dependencies.

And it seems to me that JOnAS and its dependencies fit into this
category, having been dropped mainly because of dbuild dependency
issues.  I doubt very much that any of these packages can reasonably
be described as "new submissions" -- if build problems hadn't cropped
up they would have been in FC5.

But on the other hand, they never made it into FC5.  

I don't mind, really, as long as the work involved in pushing these 30
packages into extras isn't great.
