Right. I meant if the packager said it beforehand. But I agree with you that if
he doesn't say anything and I upload it, you're right he disappearing wouldn't
be a (good enough) reason to remove the package.

This makes me (sadly?) want to concentrate on packages for which I know the
packager will keep the interest on them.
