sorry for coming around with another issue. While reading your comment without 
giving any details about your ideas, I don't know if our problem maybe 
related, sorry if not.
There are many packages, which are frequently removed from testing right 
before the release, cause of (potential) security issues and not getting in 
worries with the security team. Other packages may be obsoleted by upstream 
and lose their support.
This is often the case for web applications. We had something in mind we 
summarized at http://wiki.debian.org/Proposals/Webapps.

Maybe you can consider our issue in your thoughts.

Thanks and with kind regards, Jan.
