Afraid the name doesn't mean anything to me.

Sorry, couldn't find the message you are referring to - was it posted under
the same name? All I can find other than the the one I am replying to

Is there a history file/database somewhere where additions and
removals from the official debian package repository are logged?
Something which came back with 'removed on such and such a date
for such and such a reason' would be so much more useful than
a database which only mentioned packages that still existed.
After all, if there is a philosophical objection to a package on
some ground, removing it makes a much stronger statement if people
know why it isn't there.
