[mkoch@konqueror.de: ftp.debian.org: orig tarballs get lost when moving packages from contrib to main]

Hello all,

I filed the attached bug report because the orig tarballs of tomcat5 and
libxalan2-java are missing in the main section of the archive. They are
present in the contrib section bug 'apt-cache source ...' fails because
it looks in main only. I will make sure this gets fixed somehow so we
dont need to do source-ful uploads of transitioned packages again and

Subject: ftp.debian.org: orig tarballs get lost when moving packages from contrib to

Package: ftp.debian.org
Severity: normal

When moving packages from contrib to main you need to upload pacakge
WITH orig tarball as the this get not automatically moved from contrib
to main.

According to [1] libxalan2-java got uploaded WITH orig tarball on 17 Aug
2005 and according to [2] tomcat5 got upload WITH orig tarball on 24 Oct

The orig tarballs are NOT in main anymore. They still exist in the
contrib section although the package got uploaded to main.

When we re-upload WITH orig tarball now AGAIN there seems to be a chance
that the orig tarball vanishes again. This seems to be a bug in the
main/contrib section handling when packages get moved from one to
