Outdated non-free binaries

non-free packages are not normally autobuilt by the buildd network, but
require manual authorization in order to be picked up by buildds. This
can lead to the presence of outdated binaries for some architectures,
preventing migration to testing and domination of old sources.

We recently introduced the detection of outdated packages built on top
of non-free sources in the cruft-report [0]. A source package will be
given 15 days to build its binaries; after that deadline, outdated
binaries will be detected by cruft-report, and will eventually be
removed from the archive.

If you want to support a specific architecture, please upload fresh
binaries on your own. You may also want to enable autobuilding by
following the instructions listed at [1]
