Subject: ftp.debian.org: Please remove hsffig.
X-Mailer: reportbug 3.31

Package: ftp.debian.org
Severity: normal

Dear FTP team,

After asking the opinion of the QA team ([1], no answer), I request
the removal of the hsffig package.

hsffig is orphaned [2], fails to build from source [3], was removed
from Testing last year[4], has few users [5], and ships a binary file
whose name clashed with one from the emboss package [6]
