yup, you did, but it seems it is reflected to the list anyway.

what happened to libforms, quite some time since I last built it, has it
still not become free? We were promised that several times...

No, AFAIR the autobuilders only build main. We do not waste debian resources
on non-free software, usually.

lyx 1.1.5fix2-1 ? Hmm, whats wrong with my sources list, I always get
antique packages... I'll try to get 1.1.6

We are using chroots, its enough when the unstable packages are running in
a chroot. No big deal for you to get an account there, but I don't think we
let everybody have root on that boxes...
I'll give it a shot, I think I have built earlier versions without problems,
no promises though.
