directly or indirectly, and it have not such many  problems (e.g bug open on
bugzilla for example ), well this  could guide to the decision of the
goodness of the software and the need to delete it or not if the maintainer
does not believe to support it yet. Conversely, if software is not used -
directly or indirectly - this could facilitate the decision to remove it, in
the event that this possibility emerge. In general it depends on what
someone thing of what it is the QA of a distribution: finding bugs, automate
the process of finding bugs is one thing. But not alone. But it s only a
personal opinion.
