I have trouble understanding why you've removed unrelated
packages. asterisk has security issues, you pull it from testing along
with dependent packages, end of the story. Why remove other packages
that have no relationship with asterisk as far as the testing scripts
are concerned ?

Even if we were to ship a stable release without asterisk itself,
packages like py-asterisk and libasterisk-agi-perl are still useful.

I understand why you're pissed at asterisk. I am too. But this is
being worked on and some people are putting a lot of energy into
that. In the meantime, please avoid collateral damages :)
