Could you please explain how you are checking this?  Just looking at

security/libident is available via one of the main vlc developers at:


comms/gsmlib is maintained by Debian:


science/bblimage has been renamed to pyvox and is available at:


That's eight false positives out of eleven  deprecations that I
selected by inspection, and I didn't spend more than two minutes
checking any of them.
