I see. Thanks for the clarification.

So, then there isn't any chance of getting aircrack-ng on wheezy?

I feel that aircrack-ng is a popular piece of software, even after it
was removed from the archives a year ago, its still on the top 6% of the
most popular packages on Debian (ranked as #6696 of #128176 on popcon) [1]

So I think that it will be a pity to exclude it from Wheezy because I
think many Debian users are really going to miss this package.

Of course this is my personal opinion and I understand that your
priorities as release team is not about adding more packages to testing
but about fixing the current ones that are already there.

But giving that we are still near from the freeze (20 days) and taking
into account all issues exposed, I am just wondering if an exception can
be done for this particular case.

Thanks in advance!

Best regards!
