You can monitor http://ftp-master.debian.org/removals.txt and
http://non-us.debian.org/~troup/removals.txt (I don't know if either of
these is "official", but they've been stable for some time). There's
also a QA mail alias which gets notified when packages are removed for
the purpose of cleaning up bugs, which it might be possible to subscribe
you to; talk to Martin Michlmayr, I think.
