the next line is the important one:

skipped: cln (0) (150+4)
    got: 167+0: a-40:a-33:h-49:i-45
    * i386: ginac-cint, libginac-dev

This means that when cln will go into testing ginac-cint und libginac-dev
will become uninstallable in testing on i386 (note that the architectures
are checked in alphabetical order and only the problems on the first
architecture with problems are shown).

> guess, but what are these funny numbers?)

The "got" line:
These are the number of problems in testing on the different architectures
(until the first architecture where a problem is found - see above). The
"i-45" means that if cln would go into testing there would be 45
uninstallable packages on i386 (if you look at the entries above and below
cln you see that there are currently 43 uninstallable packages in testing
on i386).

In the "skipped: cln (0) (150+4)" line:
- still 150 packages to go through after this package until this run
  through all packages is completed
- already found 4 packages in this run through all packages that won't be
  planned to be upgraded because they would break dependencies

Note that there are several runs through all packages in one testing run.

I can't guess the meaning of the "(0)" like I guessed the meaning of the
other figures because it seems to be always 0 in the latest update_output.
