As I have said list is just a preview.

I was trying (successfully) to update a library major version (only 
locally) and try to rebuild all packages that require it. So after 
preparing a simple script I've found packages that require it but are 
laying for months only in svn and untouched.

When I ask people about "their" packages, some like avr-binutils are 
wrong and to be deleted.

But right, it's not time to look after these packages, when we can't 
maintain the already "pushed" ones.

I can unveil the script if it's useful for someone. I use some basic 
bash tools..

But I think it could be done automatically somewhere online - to prepare 
a monitor page, for developers as a reminder what is in our svn waiting 
for its time? And the list can contain only those packages that wait 
uncommitted for more then 1 month?

I am attaching the list with description who and when has it committed 
the last time http://kamil.mageia.org.pl/list_info.txt
