Yep, I think that's the way to go.

Yes, it is. But we shouldn't delete all unmaintained ports from cvs, 
but simply remove the UNMAINTAINED tag, so it's easy for CLC maintainer
to adopt ports again.

At all, this will be a remarkable change in the CLC structure, so more
comments from other maintainers are desirable. And, please, look again
through the unmaintained collection, maybe one or another port will 
find its way to contrib.

thanks in advance and kind regards
