Probably -developers ;-)

I like the idea. It'd certainly save me having to remember to get
round to asking Niels or Jeremiah to remove the old "Horizon" package
I uploaded ages ago, before it was renamed "Attitude".

There is probably some careful thinking to do, though, about any
impact his might have on builds etc. I'd say the source pacakges
should stay, though.

Having stuff just lie around in -devel just encourages users at some
future point to use it. It should really be seen as a staging ground
for developers to try things and check their packages are vaguely
sensible before promotion to -testing IMHO.
