I am curious, how are we (err, Debian) supposed to deal with old
libraries? I have been using uvscan by NAI, and aside from its being
non-free it unfortunately depends on libstdc++ 2.8, which was previously
available through the package libstdc++2.8_2.90.29-2.deb. This doesn't
seem to be available anywhere now, for which reason I am hanging on to
my local copy.
I know it would be ideal for users like myself to convince NAI to use an
acceptably recent version of libstdc++, but I just thought I'd wonder
out loud if there's anything we can do to provide old libraries in
Debian for poor folk who have to use software like NAI uvscan.
