So, I'm afraid that the direction to go is:

-reassign these bugs to adduser

-find help for Marc

I'm not fond of reassigning bugs to adduser because I know the
situation about this package and Marc desperately needing help to
maintain it.

Maybe time for another call for help for adduser (IIRC, you already
posted some, Marc). I'm really sad that some of our
key packages cannot receive enough attention while we keep getting
bunch of crappy new packages noone cares about, in the archive.

If we go this way, I intend to post a message to -devel (or even
-devel-announce) with these ideas (probably not the "crappy packages"
part)...and do my best to have it published in DWN.
