Packages removed from testing

Hello world,

Following packages should disappear from testing/woody (but not from
unstable/sid) with the next mirror run:

  circlepack |    4.0.1-3 | source, alpha, arm, i386, m68k, powerpc, sparc
  dstool     |      2.0-4 | source, alpha, i386, m68k, powerpc, sparc
  treetool   |    2.0.2-1 | source, alpha, arm, i386, m68k, powerpc, sparc
  xvmount    |     3.6-10 | source, alpha, arm, i386, m68k, powerpc, sparc

(uninstallable: depends on xviewg which needs a rebuild to cope with X4)

  ditributed-net  | 2.7018.401-1 | powerpc
  distributed-net |   2.7106-7.1 | source, alpha, i386, sparc

(uninstallable on all but ppc; depends on libnss-compat which is no
longer available; fixed versions are in sid for some arches)

  locale-ja |         18 | source, all
  locale-vi |        1-5 | source, all
  locale-zh | 0.9+0.05-5 | source, all

(uninstallable; versioned conflicts with libc)

  kterm | 6.2.0-19potato2 | source, alpha, arm, i386, m68k, powerpc, sparc

(uninstallable; depends on locale-ja)

  mxmaps |      1.0-7 | source, all

(uninstallable; depends on xmap-{s,d}motif, which aren't available)

  task-chinese   |        0.7 | source
  task-chinese-s |        0.7 | all
  task-chinese-t |        0.7 | all

(uninstallable; waiting for new zh-autoconvert)

  wmppxp |   0.51.0-2 | source, alpha, arm, i386, m68k, powerpc, sparc

(uninstallable; waiting on updated ppxp (which no longer builds) that
 doesn't depend on old xpm libs)

  abiword |    0.7.7-1 | source, alpha, arm, i386, m68k, powerpc, sparc

(RC bug #74882; the latest packaged version may fix this, but it suffers from
 other RC bugs)

  base-config |       0.43 | source, alpha, i386, m68k, powerpc, sparc

(RC bug #79336; fixed in unstable)

  fetchmail     |    5.5.3-1 | source, alpha, arm, i386, m68k, powerpc, sparc
  fetchmailconf |    5.5.3-1 | all

(RC bugs #69983, #75287, #76663, #85096 against fetchmail; RC bug #69005
 against fetchmailconf; some of these may be able to be downgraded or closed)

  lilo     |   1:21.6-2 | source, i386
  lilo-doc |   1:21.6-2 | i386

(RC bug #81342, amongst others; don't appear to be fixed in unstable)

  smail | | source, alpha, arm, i386, m68k, powerpc, sparc

(RC bugs #69165, #66595; smail was pulled from potato for these, shouldn't
 have appeared in testing at all :-/. It's also orphaned, so no fixes in

  libforms0.86        |     0.86-5 | source, i386
  libforms0.86-altdev |     0.86-5 | i386

(Unused; doesn't work with X4)

  metro-motif-lib     |      2.0-2 | source, all
  metro-motif-demobin |      2.0-2 | source, all
  metro-motif-bin     |      2.0-2 | source, all
  metro-motif-devel   |      2.0-2 | source, all
  metro-motif-demosrc |      2.0-2 | source, all
  metro-motif-man     |      2.0-3 | source, all

(-lib and -demobin depends on xpm4.7, -bin and -devel depend on -lib
 -demosrc depends on -devel, no point keeping -man around if all the
 others go away)

  communicator-base-47     |     4.7-14 | i386, powerpc
  communicator-nethelp-47  |     4.7-14 | all
  communicator-smotif-47   |     4.7-14 | i386, powerpc
  communicator-spellchk-47 |     4.7-14 | all
  navigator-base-47        |     4.7-14 | i386
  navigator-nethelp-47     |     4.7-14 | all
  navigator-smotif-47      |     4.7-14 | i386
  netscape-base-47         |     4.7-14 | i386, powerpc
  netscape-java-47         |     4.7-14 | all
  netscape-smotif-47       |     4.7-14 | i386
  netscape4.7              |     4.7-14 | source

({communicator,navigator,netscape}-base-47 on i386 depend on xpm4.7 and
 thus don't work with X4, all the rest go along with it as from the same
 source package)

  netscape3 |     3.04-8 | source, i386

(also depends on xpm4.7, and also doesn't work with X4)

If/when these packages are fixed, they should automatically get returned
into testing -- the above certainly doesn't mean any of those packages
won't make it into woody by the time it's released. OTOH, if they're
not going to be fixed the maintainers probably need to request their
removal from unstable (file a bug against ftp.debian.org).

This leaves woody's uninstallability count at:

	i386: 18 packages
	alpha: 38 packages
	sparc: 43 packages
	m68k: 80 packages
	arm: 151 packages
	powerpc: 164 packages

For reference, the unreleased architectures in sid look like:

	mips: 401 packages
	hurd-i386: 897 packages

(mips, mipsel, sh, hppa and ia64 don't have any non arch: all uploads
at the moment)

The testing scripts' guesstimate at how many RC bugs testing still
has after this is around 250. There are 505 RC bugs all up (including
virtual packages like ftp.debian.org and packages that are only in sid,
not woody).
