The (0) is obsolete debugging code, that'll be gone with the next update.
The rest is somewhat explained at the FAQ at:
which is linked from:
In short, it means that the voberon source package (and all its binaries on
all arches) wasn't updated in testing, because although it didn't cause any
further breakage on alpha, arm, or hppa, it caused voberon-dev to become
uninstallable on i386. If you look at the update_excuses page, you'll find
that it says:
+ Depends: voberon liboo2cx11
which indicates that voberon almost certainly won't go in until liboo2cx11
also does. Unfortunately, liboo2cx11 isn't going to go in any time soon:
* liboo2cx11 (- to 20000720-1.1)
+ Maintainer: Mike Goldman
+ 123 days old (needed 2 days)
+ liboo2cx11-dev (alpha, i386, ia64, m68k, powerpc, s390,
sparc) is buggy! (1 > 0)
The bug being referred to is #127148 which is grave and has been open
for 73 days without any comment from the maintainer.
