Well there are always reasons for packages to been removed. I can only
answer for webmin. I uploaded the 0.80-1 version and it was placed in
main (it should be in non-US). But that is not the reason why it was
removed because I just had to upload a new version and ask somebody to
change the override file.

The reason is that Jaldhar is about adopt them (he have a better
packaging structure) and he is working on it. For more webmin status
see some other threads on this list. :)

To upload the new webmin packages the orginal webmin package had
to be removed so thats why. I think webmin is about to be released
soon, but he'll know better than I do.
