Packages to consider moving from main/ to community/

Hi there Alpinists,

We've made a list of packages currently in main/ that may be better
suited to being in community/:

== Media software / stuff that uses Qt5 upstream ==

Rationale: Qt 5 is in community, doesn't really belong in main

* audacious
* v4l-utils


== HTTP servers ==

Rationale: HTTP servers are notoriously terrible at security and having
them in main means lots of maintenance work for Alpine to keep security
fixes for them for years.

* darkhttpd
* lighttpd (+ acf-lighttpd)
* mini_httpd
* nghttp2


Thanks for your consideration.


Best to you and yours,
--arw
