There is no squeeze on alpha, so there is no mlton package in squeeze on

merulo's apt-get in sid now segfaults on apt-get update, after having
read the squeeze packages list once.  Nothing brings it back to live.

all the other chroots are now fucked because we did as you asked, and
for some reason it wants to bring in mlton-doc:

I think we won't be doing anything like that again any time soon.

ftpmaster can be reached at ftpmaster@d.o.  debian-admin is debian
admin (aka DSA).
