At the time of the original mail the package had been stuck in sid
(out of sarge) for over 100 days. The current version is 97 days old
and also stuck in sid.
Apart from the one RC bug the package is missing on several archs. You
need to login to one of debians systems and build the package manually
(non-free is not autobuild) or find someone on the porters list to
build it for you.
The QA page does not list any version of 3270 for testing. If thats
right the upcoming stable will release without 3270 unless you do
