I was unable to reproduce this bug when it was first filed, but I
definitely believe it to have been fixed as of 1.10-2.  Is anyone
able to reproduce this behavior using version 1.10-2 of e2fsprogs?
I've downgraded from 1.10-2 to 1.06-3 and back without difficulty, but
since I was unable to reproduce the bug initally, it's hard to say for
certain that it is 100% fixed.

I believe that #9255 has been fixed by perlsgml_1996Oct09-5, currently
in 'hamm'.  Perhaps moving perlsgml_1996Oct09-5 to 'bo' would be a
better solution than removing it from the release?

Bug #9258 could also be fixed by moving sgml-data_0.02 from 'hamm' to
'bo'.  Since sgml-data_0.02 appears to have been in 'hamm' for several
weeks with no bug reports, this might be a reasonable option.

If you like, I'd be willing to re-compile the current version of seyon
with fixed dependencies and re-upload it within 12 hours.  Probably
it'd be safer just to remove it, but I wanted the offer to be

The package 'vrweb' should probably be removed from 'bo' anyway, as it
never seems to have worked in the first place.  Would anyone object if
I were to upgrade this to the latest version for 'hamm'?

I'd offer to rebuild the current version of 'j1' as well, but I have
no sympathy for any package that include /usr/bin/j as one of its
