Yep. The lists here have been updated:
In the deps list I note the following packages:
* flite => speech-dispatcher -> kdeaccessibility
* *fonts* incl (fontpackages) => if nim doesn't sign, someone has stepped up
to take over
* libcgroup => policycoreutils
* libibverbs => corosynclib, glusterfs-common, openmpi, qpid-cpp-client-rdma
* libmlx4 => libibverb
* libmthca => libibverb
* mx => smolt, python-logilab-common => pylint, gwibber
* python-pip => I have someone who's expressed interest in this but they need
a packaging mentor (I'm willing to sponsor if someone else is willing to be
primary mentor). He's Tim Flink and has completed part of a review but
that's it so he does need mentoring:
* python-polib => transifex
* There's some python zope modules if the people packaging up those zope
modules want to take those on.
* pywebkitgtk => gwibber, rhythmbox
* SOAPpy => python-twisted-web
* sound-theme-freedesktop => libcanberra
* xerces-c => qpid, xqilla, xalan-c
* xqilla -> qpid-cpp-server-xml
The list of to be orphaned packages (first level deps are attached):

Please notice that I'm still in need of this review, This application is
the text editor control integrated into the Nitrate TCMS system which
will be adopted by Fedora qa.

I am still in the process of becoming a packager, but for one of my hobbies
I am working on an overhaul of the the popular Xournal software package.
This project of mine is dependent on clutter-gtkmm.
However the current version in the repository for f14/f15 has a major bug,
preventing all programs which link against it from compiling. I spoke with
Debarshi Ray, the packager for this package, but they
essentially asked me to take over packaging this code, since they no longer
have time. Ideally I would do this, but I am not yet a packager. The git
version of the code essentially has commit past the version
in our repositories, which fixes the problem I am having. I am using the git
version temporarily on my machine, but this is non-ideal.
Would it be possible for someone to update clutter-gtkmm? I would offer to
return the favor in any way feasible, Assuming I ever become a package I'd
even be willing to package this, down the line.
The sirius project web page has vanished and I haven't been able to find
a new one. Should I comment out the old URL and source0 definitions
and have source0 just be the archive name?
Other than needing a DSO linking fix, the game seems to work, so I don't
see a need to drop the package.
ckermit was removed from Fedora in the FC6 timeframe due to the license
not being truly open source. Fortunately the license has now changed to
BSD, so it should be acceptable in Fedora once again. I've submitted a
package for review:
