Re: My packages have dissapeared from frozen

I've searched through my mail archives for these packages.

I don't remember doing anything with xswallow, though my memory is not
all that good.  I can't find any record of an upload of xswallow to
frozen, though.  The current version in potato was uploaded only to
unstable.  My records go back to July, when I started doing archive
maintenance work.

I see 0.9-1 in slink and 0.9-4 in potato, both in non-free.  There is
no vrwave in main.

You uploaded vrwave 0.9-4 only to unstable.  At the time, we had the
following email exchange:

  Please make this upload right away, that makes it much easier to install.

When you didn't, I installed vrwave 0.9-4 anyway, and moved vrwave 0.9-1
(in slink) to non-free by hand.

It was rejected by the installer on Dec 14:

  Rejected: clips_6.0-2_i386.deb: Old version `6.0-2' >= new version `6.0-2'.

You should either increase the version number, or upload only to "frozen".
Preferably the former, since otherwise you have two packages with the
same version number, that are not identical.
