This seems to be the crux of the problem. No built in orphaning process and we
needed to start getting some updates on certain security packages.

Yes, if you were still wanting to maintain a few of these, it was an accident
and this would be my fault. I apologize for this. I checked a couple security
packages that needs work and they had your old redhat address. So, I asked
for your packages to be released so that we could continue working on them.
I guess the moral of the story to anyone else is if you leave Red Hat, please
orphan your packages before you leave and/or add your external email address
if you still want to be involved with certain packages.
