May I suggest that ypu make it clearer from those "britney hints" what
the thing is really about (for instance a comment about Python 2.7
transition in the file, instead of "uploaded at the wrong time.").
For users, which don't read d-d-a and receive such emails (below), it's
a bit unclear what's really happening, IMHO :-/
My 2 cents,

Sujet: duplicity REMOVED from testing
Date: Thu, 06 Oct 2011 16:39:12 +0000
FYI: The status of the duplicity source package
in Debian's testing distribution has changed.
Previous version: 0.6.14-1
Current version: (not in testing)
# uploaded at the wrong time.
The script that generates this mail tries to extract removal
reasons from comments in the britney hint files. Those comments
were not originally meant to be machine readable, so if the
reason for removing your package seems to be nonsense, it is
probably the reporting script that got confused. Please check the
actual hints file before you complain about meaningless removals.
This email is automatically generated once a day. As the installation of
new packages into testing happens multiple times a day you will receive
later changes on the next day.
