Hi everybody.

>From what I see (as non dak admin) the package should not be in the
archive (anymore). The following packages exists in the DB:

goswin@ivanova:~$ madison libopencdk4
libopencdk4 |  1:0.4.2-4 |      unstable | amd64

goswin@ivanova:~$ madison opencdk
   opencdk |  1:0.4.2-4 |      unstable | source

goswin@ivanova:~$ madison opencdk8
  opencdk8 |   0.5.5-10 |        stable | source
  opencdk8 |    0.5.7-2 |       testing | source
  opencdk8 |    0.5.7-2 |      unstable | source

But the overrides, synced nightly from Debian, say only:

goswin@ivanova:/org/amd64.debian.net$ grep opencdk scripts/override/*sid*
scripts/override/override.sid.main:libopencdk8-dev      optional        libdevel
scripts/override/override.sid.main:libopencdk8-dbg      extra   libdevel
scripts/override/override.sid.main:libopencdk8  important       libs
scripts/override/override.sid.main.src:opencdk8 libs

Going by the opencdk bugreport the package was removed around August
1st. Plenty of time for the amd64 rene to recommend its removal. Yet
it still remains. An ftp-master might have to intervene, that means
Ganneff or Aba. I messaged Ganneff on irc about this and he usualy
reads the amd64 list anyway.
