please let googleearth-package back into squeeze contrib.

Removal of packages is a reasonable way forward at this stage of the release, 
IMHO, especially for "pet" packages. Given that googleearth (whether you like 
it or not) has millions of users I think it's reasonable to let it in again.

The changes to the package are reviewable:

$ debdiff googleearth-package_0.5.7.dsc googleearth-package_0.6.1.dsc|diffstat

The maintainer cared, a fixed version was available on mentors.debian.net on 
December 1st, just nobody cared to upload :( 

And true, Adnan should have also notified the bug and the mentors list, but 
well, he is in the new maintainer process and still learning. I'd think he 
learned this lesson by now. ;) (*)

I'm subscribed to the package in the PTS and will together with Adnan make 
sure it stays in good shape.



(*) it also would be nice if mentors.d.n could automatically mark bugs as 
pending, when a package is available fixing a bug, just like it is done by 
NEW. Will suggest this in a new thread on -mentors@

so googleearth-package was removed from squeeze, because of a RC bug, which 
was fixed on mentors.d.n for 4 days already when it was removed. Sadly the 
maintainer didnt ask for sponsorship on the mentors-list, so his uploaded was 
not noticed immediatly.

Then, 605959 asking for its removal was filed (against r.d.o, without 
notifiying the g-p mainatiner) and the packages was removed within 7 hours.

That same day I sponsored the package, sadly that upload introduced 606045, 
which we fixed on the next day.

That was a month ago. 

Since then I was hoping that some nice releaseteam member would it go in 
again, after it all it wont even be part of squeeze, it's just in contrib. 
And it has millions of users there, whether you like it or not. (I dont, but 
I have to cater for quite some users who love it.)

So I'm closing 606222 now, to not have to think about it anymore. 

At least we have the elephant in the room, gladly to help our users.
