indeed unstable is updated constantly and frequently, but sometimes it 
happens a package is being abandoned by its maintainer (or even worst 
himself abandon the blastwave community) without posting us any notice 
about this decision.
we are thinking about some automated system to detect whether a 
maintainer is still "active" or not, so that we are alerted when a 
package is "abandoned".
