Re: How to find out why a package was removed from testing?

Err, those are reasons to remove the package from /unstable/, not from testing. Packages get removed from testing when they have RC bugs, and that's pretty much it. I don't believe any package has ever been removed from testing because there's a "better replacement" or "dead upstream" without it either also having some RC bugs, or having already been removed from unstable...
