maybe i can take on a few more; allthough i still have some bug reports 
assigned to me that are still open...

Earlier i sent an email regarding these unmaintained packages, with a 
suggestions if the maintainers of these other similar tools could take these, 
if they don't, i may take them.

cdrkit -> dvd+rw-tools
iproute2 -> iptables
spec-helper -> rpm

also about apache, i've done a few security patches for the stable version, so 
i might be able to help out with this, but i can't completely take on apache 
for myself, especially since i don't really use cauldron.
