:( 

Thats anoying. Do we know how many package names are in that situation? 
Is there someone that can remove the ones that should really be gone?

Sure, but that's what we have already, right?

Yeah. I wish bugzilla had some kind of alias setup... if someone files
a bug against a re-named package it should file against the new
component name. 

For packages that are totally dropped, perhaps something could be
rigged to file against a 'dropped package' component... 

I don't know that it has any such ability however. ;(

I guess so. In this case gconvert never existed... so I can't imagine
why anyone would file a bug against it, but removing it from the
owners.list won't matter much apparently. ;(
