This looks all right.

Quoting from <20030825044932.GF13096@quetzlcoatl.dodds.net>,

| Package: chicken
| Testing: 0.1072-2
| Unstable: 1.10-2
| Bugs: 189296
| Suggestion: remove-outdated-binaries, remove-from-testing
| Analysis:
|  Previous versions of this package built on sparc, and binaries are
|  present in testing and unstable.  The package fails to build because
|  the generated tool (a compiler) is run during the build process, and
|  segfaults on many architectures.  There are non-trivial porting issues
|  with compilers in general, and since this is a scheme compiler, it
|  requires additional expertise to get it running again.  All things
|  considered, 7 out of 11 architectures isn't bad for something like
|  this, so I don't see any reason not to fix things up so the most recent
|  packages proceed into testing.

I guess aj just needs to remove the tags and let it try to get in again?

     2. That which causes joy or happiness.
