I've wondered about this, too and I don't quite understand why
libsigcx isn't going into testing, since I really don't grok this one:


What strikes me is this (from above URL):

| Updating libsigcx makes 4 packages uninstallable on alpha: libsigcx-0.6-1, libsigcx-0.6-dev, libsigcx-gtk-0.6-1, libsigcx-gtk-0.6-dev
|     * libsigcx-0.6-1 has no testing candidate 
|     * libsigcx-0.6-dev has no testing candidate 
|     * libsigcx-gtk-0.6-1 has no testing candidate 
|     * libsigcx-gtk-0.6-dev has no testing candidate 

So how can libsigcx break it's own binary packages (libsigcx-0.6-1,
libsigcx-0.6-dev, ...), which aren't even in testing yet:

| rotty@auric:~% madison libsigcx-0.6-1 libsigcx-0.6-dev libsigcx-gtk-0.6-1 libsigcx-gtk-0.6-dev | grep testing 
| rotty@auric:~%

And furthermore: Why do they have no testing canditate?

Any help really appreciated.

Packages should build-depend on what they should build-depend.
