Orphaned Ports

Should be retained (possibly with a new maintainer)

Can be dropped

It should not cause major problems to drop the following ports (most in contrib, some in opt), if nobody volunteers to pick them up after a period of being marked unmaintained. The first subsection lists the ports with no official maintainer; the following subsections are meant to be discussed by the CRUX team.

queued up for removal already

python3 ports whose only purpose is to build documentation

ports that could be moved to a dedicated LXDE repo

ports that get only minimal attention from upstream

ports whose dependents have already been dropped

ports whose dependents are marked unmaintained

ports that only satisfy soft dependencies

ports that are only of interest for audio/video production

ports whose target audience is another small niche (e.g. cross-platform game developers)
