A package can be removed (hinted for removal) from testing by the release managers without anyone requesting it if it's been RC buggy for too long and no packages (in testing) depend on it (if it's extremely buggy and not too many or too important packages depend on it I guess those can be removed too). A package can be removed from unstable after someone files an RM bug against the ftp.debian.org pseudopackage. It will then automatically disappear from testing, again once no packages in testing depend on it. -- Magnus Holmgren email@example.com Debian Developer
