Hi there, this is meant as general problem and not regarded only to Romain, so no direct fingerpointing, this is just meant as example. Today I was working on a (private) backport and did need dh-ocaml, which is not in stable. Looking on lenny-bpo I recognized, there is a package there ... but unfortunately horrible outdated.

So please ... keep care of you packages, think twice ... if you conclude you are unable to support your packages, please don't upload them! Regarding dh-ocaml, I did upload a recent package ... but I hope the origin uploader will take care if it in the future.
