Huh? The ones that matter are the kdm ones, which are tagged pending, not
woody. It's also not built everywhere, etc.

I give up, why isn't it?

The dependency order has no relevance to the testing scripts, and I
can't think of a case when it would be an RC bug.

If it's not useful at all anymore, it should be dropped from unstable,
rather than just testing. If it's orphaned, any member of debian-qa (ie,
more or less any developer) can request its removal in the usual manner
(bug against ftp.d.o).
