As you can see, all packages except for polyorb and narval have
now completed the transition to gnat-4.6.  dh-ada-library is a
new package that Nicolas Boulenguez wrote and submitted.  No
other package build-depends on dh-ada-library yet but this will
happen in due course; Nicolas has already made changes to some
packages in the version control system so that their next uploads
will use dh-ada-library.

So it is time to think about the migration of all packages to
testing.  polyorb and narval have been removed from unstable
and testing[1] per request of the QA people, so they are not
blocking the migration of any other packages.  It seems the only
package blocking the migration is libgtkada2 (ancestor of
libgtkada).  I will request its removal and hope that the
migration to testing takes place soon.

Xavier, please tell us whether you plan to revive polyorb and
narval in Debian or not.
