I explained this already in my mail to debian-sparc when I announced
the freeze's completion. Here it is again:
| Sorry for the delay, but it's finally been done. The following
| packages have been removed from slink because the version in sid was
| from potato. Please recompile them with the slink source and hax0r
| the .changes file to say `frozen' only and upload them.
| apache, apache-common, f2c, libgdbm* (source: gdbm), netstd,
| cfengine, gnuplot, xspread, pccts.
| (And from contrib: netscape-base-4)
| I removed fbset2 from frozen _and_ unstable as it's obsolete, please
| compile the newest fbset source as normal.
| Some other packages were removed from slink, but shouldn't be
| recompiled for slink. (For the record they were:
| libapache-mod-roaming, geda, libnet-ldap-perl, libconvert-ber-perl,
| egcs64, kernel-image-2.1.125)
| (If you need any of them in a slink, you'll need to upload source for
| the package to slink too)
