Also happens that the source package generates several
libawesome81...89 in the months/years between stable releases, so they
don't make it to any stable, and as new versions get into unstable and
testing, some of the binary packages are not present in any of
Eg.: libawesome80 in stable, 88 in testing, 89 in unstable; and bugs
assigned to 82-87.
At least that's how I understand it.
