New update_excuses output

Hello world,

As of the next dinstall/testing run (a few hours away yet) there'll be a
new set of lines in the update_excuses output [0] (NB: it's now over a MB so
it's quite long and tedious). They look like:

          + bonobo/alpha: Unsatisfiable Depends: libbonobo2 (>= 1.0.8),
            libefs1, libgnomeprint15 (>= 0.29-1)
          + libbonobo-dev/alpha: Unsatisfiable Depends: bonobo (= 1.0.8-1), 
            libbonobo2 (= 1.0.8-1), libefs-dev
          + libefs-dev/alpha: Unsatisfiable Depends: libefs1 (= 1.0.8-1)

and appear for all architectures.

They're interpreted as follows:

          + bonobo/alpha: Unsatisfiable Depends: 

"The version of bonobo.deb on alpha has some unsatisfiable dependencies.
These may or may not be a problem, but they're listed here for your
information. They are:"

                                                 libbonobo2 (>= 1.0.8),

"Considering just the current packages in testing, you can't install them
in any way, shape or form so that `libbonobo2 (>= 1.0.8)' is available."

            libefs1, libgnomeprint15 (>= 0.29-1)

"Likewise for libefs1 (even consider Provides:) and libgnomeprint15 (taking
the version into account)"

The fact that libbonobo2 is part of the same source as bonobo isn't
noticed and dealt with atm, which leads to lots of pointless output atm,
unfortunately. A fix for that, and a feature to use this info to try
and calculate ordering for things to be added to testing intelligently,
are on the wishlist.

Anyway, that info should make diagnosing why your package isn't getting into
testing a bit easier, hopefully, maybe.

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

     And freedom will be defended.''   Condolences to all involved.
