Packages to remove from frozen

I am about to remove the following packages from potato, because they
have release-critical bugs that are not being fixed.

Please mail me if you know that a fix is on the way, or that the bug
is not release-critical.

The removals will be performed three days from now.

I will also notify each maintainer.
