Fair enough.  The one point I take from this: we need to do a better job 
of publishing the minutes to FESCO.

The discussion of this particular issue, though, did not happen during a
weekly meeting.  It happened thru emails and IRC, and it went something
like this:

"Some of these packages are ancient and insecure.  If no one is bothering 
to maintain them AND they're huge security risks, we need to orphan them 
and pull the RPMs from the repo."




So consider yourself in the loop.  :)
