Britney has just finished removing the following 21 packages:

ax25-apps, fabric, firmware-crystalhd, icewm-themes, ilisp, inguma,
lustre, mingw-ocaml, noflushd, openvas-plugins-dfsg, php-crypt-gpg,
phpgacl, python-django-piston, smbind, sorl-thumbnail, spatialite-gui,
sugar-chat-activity-0.86, sugar-log-activity-0.86, sugar-moon-activity,
twidge, venkman

The removed packages accounted for about 4.4% of all RC bugs left in

We got about 3 or 4, who took advantage of this offer.  I also noticed
two bug reports with a promise of a (N)MU in the report, which I left
for now[1].

By my count 5 RC bugs got downgraded and about packages 14 got an upload
to unstable (most of which have already been unblocked).


According to [BTS-RC], there were 479 RC bugs concerning testing at 6 am
UTC.  Assume that each package only had 1 RC each, 21/479 ~~ 4.4%

[1] But I intend check up on them.
