When closing bugs, we can mark them as fixed in some version. When
removing packages, the archive maintainers choose to close the bugs of
the package and mark them as fixed in a version that ends in the 3
characters "+rm". You can search the list of bugs for ones that are
closed in a version ending in "+rm" and unarchive/reopen those using
have to click "Toggle all extra information" at the bottom of the page
before you can see any of the version information.
