Subject: O: middleman -- web content caching and filtering proxy server
Date: Thu, 06 Jan 2005 21:37:57 +0100
Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

I intend to orphan the middleman package, because it is no more maintained

The package description is:
 Middleman is a robust proxy server with many features designed to remove
 unwanted content, increase privacy, and to simply make surfing the web a more
 pleasant experience.
 Some of the highlights include:
  * an intuitive web interface for configuring the proxy
  * banner and popup blocking
  * HTTP and FTP content caching
  * NTLM and Basic authentication when forwarding through another proxy server
  * regular expression substitution in downloaded files and HTTP headers
  * regular expression substitution on requested URLs
  * many URL commands to temporarily change the proxy settings or to view
    information about a requested file
  * complete support for HTTP/1.1 including persistent connections and gzip

Subject: Removed middleman from unstable
Date: Sat, 21 May 2005 16:41:16 -0400
We believe that the request you reported is now fixed; the following
package(s) have been removed from unstable:

 middleman | 2.0.1+cvs20040427-5 | source, alpha, arm, hppa, i386, ia64, m68k, mips, mipsel, powerpc, s390, sparc

Reason: RoQA; orphaned; NPOASR, no longer maintained upstream

Note that the package(s) have simply been removed from the tag
database and may (or may not) still be in the pool; this is not a bug.
The package(s) will be physically removed automatically when no suite
references them (and in the case of source, when no binary references
it).  Please also remember that the changes have been done on the
master archive ( and will not propagate to any
mirrors ( included) until the next cron.daily run at the

Packages are never removed from testing by hand.  Testing tracks
unstable and will automatically remove packages which were removed
from unstable when removing them from testing causes no dependency

Bugs which have been reported against this package are not automatically
removed from the Bug Tracking System.  Please check all open bugs and
close them or re-assign them to another package if the removed package
was superseded by another one.

Thank you for reporting the bug, which will now be closed.  If you
have further comments please address them to the just-closed bug (or by
replying to this mail if there is no bug closed).
