I guess we will always need a maintainer database

here it is including the crude python (*) script I am using:

Attached the mismatch between 32 bit and 64 bit filtered by

$ grep -v -e "cygwin\|perl\|Both" pkg_arch.txt  |tee pkg_mismatch.txt

to remove the cross-package and the perl subpackages that
are the major part of the virtual mismatch.

They are around 100 but some are in reality obsoleted as
rxvt and aewm++ that are dead upstream, and some are
virtual mismatches.

big dream ;-)

For the time being I suggest to focus on the mismatches and see
which programs should be buried as obsolete and which are worth
to be ported on 64bit.

*) my real job is not in software, and writing a program every
    2-3 year  is a very good way to continuously loose practice
    and relearn a language...
