Considering removal of simgear from testing


As the subject suggests, I am considering the removal of simgear from
testing.  The reason is that it suffers from 3 unique FTBFS and it is a
a part of a transition (openscenegraph)[1].  I did consider NMUing it,
but I have no clue where to start with #634088.

Two of the RC bugs[2] are more than 2 months old with no feedback from
the maintainer(s), the last one is only a couple of days old.

According to dak[3] it still has some reverse dependencies, namely
fgfs-atlas, fgrun and flightgear.

flightgear: Has same maintainers as simgear.  It also have its own RC
            bug #634424, but it is too young in my eyes to be grounds
            for removal.  This package is also a part of the
            openscenegraph transition.
fgrun: Under the same team as simgear (but different uploader).  No RC
       bugs itself to my knowledge.
fgfs-atlas: Maintained by the uploader of simgear.  No RC bugs itself to
            my knowledge.

On a related note, these packages have a "RFH" bug #487388.
