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

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.
