Sure, that was an error. See #304622.

I'm not the fragroute maintainer, I'm just trying to help to fix the RC
bug #351269. Apologies if it was not my place to request a binNMU.
The fragroute in sarge additionally suffers from the libdumbnet bug
#364821, which was recently fixed for sid. So a binNMU would not be
enough for sarge.
Again, sorry if I'm stepping on somebody's toes.
