The OrphanedPackages and RetiredPackages pages in the Fedoraproject wiki list packages which are orphaned. However, it hasn't been synced with owners.list since February 2007. We need to take the information from those lists and add them to the packagedb then delete the lists from the wiki.

There are also packages in the package db orphan list, that are actually retired, e.g. https://admin.fedoraproject.org/pkgdb/packages/name/thinkpad-kmod https://admin.fedoraproject.org/pkgdb/packages/name/fedora-rpmdevtools

Also the only retired package in package db is missing an explanation, why it is retired: https://admin.fedoraproject.org/pkgdb/packages/name/dejavu-lgc-fonts

Is this still valid?

I'm thinking we probably just want to replace the wiki lists with some text to check the relevant packagedb urls at this point. No changes to the pkgdb necessary after all this time.
