I'd like to collect a list of packages where the upstream project has ostensibly died or vanished. I would maintain a fork of those projects, so we have a place where we can "upstream" our fixes and changes, maybe collaborate with OpenSUSE packagers, and don't have to cargo-cult with downstream patches forever.
Candidates for dead projects (covers packages currently maintained by both @java-maint-sig and @stewardship-sig):
These are no longer required since I disabled the unused ant scripting support in maven-plugin-tools.
