Hi,

Before this transition can start, we will need a solution for amule,
djmount, gmrender-resurrect and linphone (which is either RM or upload
with a fix).

Removing all of them leads to the following collateral damage[1]:

"""
Checking reverse dependencies...
# Broken Depends:
kopete: kopete
libosmo-abis: libosmotrau2

# Broken Build-Depends:
kopete: libmediastreamer-dev (>= 3.6)
        libortp-dev (>= 0.13)
libosmo-abis: libortp-dev
libosmo-netif: libortp-dev
osmo-bts: libortp-dev

Dependency problem found.
"""
(I have not researched exactly which package causes what to break; that
is an exercise left for the reader)

Accordingly, if we plan on removing these packages, their dependencies
are now also a part of the transition (having to move away from the
packages being removed or being removed themselves - the latter leading
to a rinse-and-repeat effect).

So:

 * Which of amule, djmount, gmrender-resurrect, linphone are going to
   be fixed/removed?

 * What is and how do we handle the collateral (if any) from any
  removals?

Thanks,
~Niels
