As you can see, all but a few packages have now transitioned to
gnat-4.6.  In a couple of weeks, I shall request that packages
that still have not made the transition be removed from testing
(but not unstable) so that other packages can migrate to testing.

Also, a minor change in Debian Policy for Ada is forthcoming: we
will remove the virtual package ada-compiler, which is not really
necessary and causes lots of lintian warnings[1].  So, please go
ahead and upload updates to your packages to remove dependencies
on ada-compiler.  The last step will be to upload a gnat-4.6 that
does not Provide: ada-compiler.  I hope to do this last upload in
May at the latest, in time for the freeze in June.
