I have orphaned 2 packages and have plans to retire them from rawhide.

1) Since last 3 years I am the maintainer for scanbuttond package. I
have one RFE bug open for this package but didn't get time to work on
it as I have no scanner with me to work on it. This package has not
seen any upstream release since its initial version in fedora 0.2.3
which was released in 2006-02-17. Now I have orphaned it and thinking
there should not be any peoples using it.

2) v4l2-tool package is also orphaned. I am the upstream developer as
well as Fedora package maintainer for this. I have stopped development
on this as I have no time and no webcam device to work on. The last
upstream release for this packages was on  28 august 2007.

In case someone is still using these packages and want to maintain
them then please follow
