yet more removals
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
To be different, I went down the list of contrib packages with RC bugs,
and found a few that qualify for removal:
Bugs: 193397 203707
Suggestion: NMU, remove-from-testing
FTBFS bug open 115 days, no response from maintainer. Security hole
reported 37 days ago w/patch; local root exploit (CAN-2003-0630). This
has been fixed for woody and the Maintainer mentioned a pending upload
on Aug 5, but nothing has happened since. I recommened removing from
testing until this is patched.
Bugs: 177011 208399
Suggestion: remove-from-testing, orphan-package
Maintainer script broken for 234 days, patch sent to bts in January
2003. No response from maintainer and no upload in a year. Even when
this is worked around, the app seems unusable. I'm guessing maintainer
isn't interested anymore since he hasn't responded to the RC bugs. It
would seem that this pkg is more a candidate for experimental than
unstable, as the pkg has quite a few old important and normal bugs.
However, don't remove from unstable b/c of dep by frost. I will mail
debian-qa about orphaning.
Suggestion: remove-from-testing, remove-from-unstable
This package contains a Tcl/Tk interface to xanim. xanim was removed
from unstable because it was a long time orphaned non-free app that has
since been replaces/superceded by xine. As this package is useless
without xanim, there doesn't seem much of a point keeping it around.
N.B. tkxanim is the only reverse-dep on xanim; so after it is removed,
both can/should be removed from testing.
