Yeah, I think Benjamin Pitzer's talk touched on some of this stuff at
ROSCon ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FyUzJpldm-M ), but I really think
this is a necessary first step. Additionally, if a package does get
abandoned, we need some way to enable someone to adopt ownership, and have
that adoption be "blessed" by the ROS wiki.

So the next question is, how can we integrate some of these metrics and
features into the wiki?
