Uninstallable packages & testing

Hello world,

My `testing' distribution thing is back up on auric (rather than lully)
now. http://auric.debian.org/~ajt/ . It's running daily or so.

There's a list of uninstallable packages for both woody and potato
(sorted by source package) linked from there too. Stats for potato at
the moment are: (number of uninstallable binary packages by arch)

     * sparc:45
     * i386:10
     * m68k:45
     * alpha:64
     * powerpc:75

The ten i386 uninstallables are:

	cricket (not installable on any arch, librrds-perl is depended upon
		but only available in woody, not potato)

	libglide2-v3 (needs device3dfx-module, which is presumably built by
		device3dfx-source, but there aren't any existing packages
		that match the kernels we distribute. libglide2 is also
		an `optional' package that seems to depend on an `extra'

	gsnes9x (in main, which needs snes9x-x which is in non-free)

	pcmcia-modules-2.0.36 (which has already been removed, but the
		rsync pulse still seems to be happening so auric's out
		of date)

		(all depend on atlas1, which isn't in potato, or even woody

		(not installable on any arch, depends on spamdb, which
		isn't in potato or woody)

	tkhylafax (not installable on any arch, depends on hylafax-client,
		which isn't in potato)

	tkirc (not installable on any arch, depends on ircii, which isn't in
		potato or woody)

I don't speak for anyone save myself. GPG encrypted mail preferred.
