Nope. But it will have been wiped out with the archive purge. I will
produce a new one this evening.
What's asking for this? Nothing in the archive should be asking for
libc0.2 now, but instead should be asking for libc0.3.
I'll look into these later (unless Marcus beats me to it)

Certainly. It will probably grow, since for some critical packages we
used to be willing to do slight source hacks in order to make it
compile. We no longer will do that. That means that various packages
(even if really important) will wind up in there.
I'm hoping that when people show up and say "How can I help", that we
can say go to alpha:/gnu/hurd/debian, pick a package, and write
patches that get it out of there, and submit them upstream.

I will continue to build that on my buildd.

I will not be building contrib or non-free. Note that Debian policy
allows us to have it, so if others feel like uploading them and
maintaining them, they will go into the archive.
