It's not because they're are only on svn there's supposed to be abandoned.
Some of them could simply wrongly imported (, some of them are not
working as expected.
For example here i did import bibus but i failed to have it working
correctly with libreoffice so instead of pushing stupidly because it's
building i'm trying  (well not recently since i switched to zotero for
immediate need) to get it integrate correctly with libreoffice.
So it's far *better* to have them on svn then having them on our repo
without maintainer.
We should *first* work on package already available without maintainer.
