Maybe a better idea, would to have "[orphan alert]" (or something 
similar) in the subject of postes to the mageia-dev list.  That way no 
need to subscribe to another mailing list, and those particularly 
interested in orphaned packages could filter their messages to put these 
in a separate folder.
And of course, everyone interested in packaging/development would see 
these posts.

Just an idea :)
