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.

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

unstable and will automatically remove packages which were removed
from unstable when removing them from testing causes no dependency

close them or re-assign them to another package if the removed package

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).
