I consider it to be the main step ;-)

That's one half of the question.

Because we noone had looked into it yet.

As for which ones to keep and which ones to remove, we can start by
removing all those where there is no maintainer any more (i.e. the
maintainer is "us").

For those where it's unclear, we should try and contact the maintainer
to see his opinion.  If you can't get an answer (typically because none
of the email addresses one can find work any more), then we can change
the maintainer to "address@hidden" (but make sure the
non-answering previous maintainer is listed in "Author:", so we don't
lose track of his past role).
