Experimental packages not being aged properly?
Section 18.104.22.168 of the developer's reference says:
the experimental packages are automatically removed once you upload
the package in unstable with a higher version number.
But a p.d.o search on the libldap2 package shows that both testing and
unstable have higher version numbers (2.1.23-1) than the experimental
package (2.1.12-1). The experimental package is still there.
I would therefore like to posit that computing's central challenge, viz. "How
not to make a mess of it," has /not/ been met.
