What is the problem with "cruft" exactly?
I'm opposed to the idea that a package may be "transferred" to someone else without any explicit authorization from the original maintainer(s) (or author(s)). It is not a matter of waiting time or tools. It is morally unacceptable.
I agree. The situation here is totally different from Debian or Fedora, where the maintainers are just repackaging upstream most of the time.
