>2000 packages still waiting to enter testing, > 1500 over age
I got a script I am running on a subset of the debian packages (the
subset used by Skolelinux) to produce a summary of the package
difference between testing and unstable. I have now set it up to
generate the same list for all of the packages in the execuse file.
The list got the following statistics:
- 2164 packages total.
- 2148 packages with differences.
- 1020 valid packages.
- 372 buggy packages.
- 1549 packages over age.
- 533 packages to young.
- 46 packages marked for removal.
- Archiectures missing packages: arm(210) alpha(186) m68k(177)
hppa(150) mips(144) ia64(139)
powerpc(126) s390(123) sparc(120)
Based on update_excuses.html generated 2003.04.08 23:22:22 +0000.
The up to date list is available from
I suggest we remove packages which haven't entered testing after more
more then 300 days.
