I am happy to sponsor an upload of this package for you if you want, but I
hesitated because you said you were considering asking for the package's
removal.  There is nothing urgent, since clustalw-mpi has already been
removed from testing as mentioned in my previous mail and no longer blocks
the transition; the package will just be absent from testing until it is

Hmm, I guess you still haven't published your package at the URL you
mentioned, so there's no reason for me to worry about it right now anyway

Steve Langasek                   Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer                   to set it on, and I can move the world.
