We have 24 annotation packages in the repo maintained by Francesco Ferrari, the majority of which are broken (output below). The last time these were updated was for Bioconductor 2.8 (3 years ago). We've tried a number of times to contact Francesco but did not get a response.

The plan is to remove these 24 from the Bioconductor 3.5 release:

[1] "gahgu133acdf"       "gahgu133a.db"       "gahgu133aprobe"  
[4] "gahgu133bcdf"       "gahgu133b.db"       "gahgu133bprobe"  
[7] "gahgu133plus2cdf"   "gahgu133plus2.db"   "gahgu133plus2probe"
[10] "gahgu95av2cdf"      "gahgu95av2.db"      "gahgu95av2probe" 
[13] "gahgu95bcdf"        "gahgu95b.db"        "gahgu95bprobe"   
[16] "gahgu95ccdf"        "gahgu95c.db"        "gahgu95cprobe"   
[19] "gahgu95dcdf"        "gahgu95d.db"        "gahgu95dprobe"   
[22] "gahgu95ecdf"        "gahgu95e.db"        "gahgu95eprobe" 

If anyone is interested in taking over as maintainer please let me know.
