Description

When I browse Parabola's packages (https://www.parabola.nu/packages/), many packages that seem up-to-date show "Maintainers: Orphan". For example, linux-libre, iceweasel, icecat. I contacted the developer of these three packages (Andre F. S. Delgado), who told me that the packages are NOT orphaned but appear to be because of a problem with Parabolaweb.

Listing common packages such as the three I mentioned as "Orphan" almost scared me away from Parabola. I'm sure that many potential users/contributors will see this and will think that Parabola is dead/dying.

We don't track the maintainer in parabolaweb, we do it in git. It's a long-standing TODO item to have parabolaweb get the info from git.
