Bug#86806: Disappearing packages
The reason I think this is a a web (or archive) issue is that there
were packages in stable and testing, and now there aren't. I assume
the gnu-smalltalk maintainer does not have direct control over the
archives, and also that nobody should be taking packages *out* of
By "Browse Unstable" I meant go to
http://packages.debian.org/unstable/devel/ and look for
gnu-smalltalk. It's not there.
If you think this is a matter for ftp.debian.org, gnu-smalltalk, or
some other category, could you reclassify the bug rather than closing
Thanks for your rapid response. While I'm at it, thanks for your work
