Default unmaintained universe packages

Hello there,

there seem to be some unmaintained universe packages,

e.g. glipper:
https://bugs.edge.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/glipper/+bug/255060
e.g. gcusor:
https://bugs.edge.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gcursor/+bug/152719

these packages suffer from bit rot, they have worked once (probably), but are broken now, and nobody cares for them.

what's done in such cases?

Regards,
Michael

This looks offtopic here; ubuntu-motu would have been a better place.

If you can take care of them, or find somebody who wants to maintain them
(probably because he uses them), that's ok. Otherwise, you could ask for them to
be removed from the archive, to do so file a bug saying so and subscribe
~ubuntu-universe-sponsors. But glipper is in Debian too, and it seems to be
maintained, so I'm not sure that's a good idea.

Cheers,
Emilio
