Re: Pidgin uninstallable
First of all, right ahead: SORRY for this serious mistake of mine.
Somehow I puzzled my chroots in which I did build the package and thus
didn't notice the new build-dependency through that which is

world for a vacation and just returned to find out about this..
I'm terribly sorry and will try to get that fixed soonish.

There is no need to re-upload the old pidgin-data version to the pool
because it *is* there!
... and on all its mirrors. It's just not in the Packages files anymore
because they only pick up the latest version.
Again, big big sorry for that mistake and I'll let you know when I have
