Subject: RM: xerces25 -- RoM; superseded by xerces27
Date: Mon, 26 Dec 2005 19:25:21 -0500
Severity: normal

Please remove xerces25 and its associated binary packages.  It has
been superseded by newer versions.  At present, xerces26 and xerces27
are both in sid.  I hope to request removal of xerces26 before etch,
but for the time being, there is one package that depends upon it and
won't work with a newer version.  As of this moment, there are two
packages that depend upon xerces25.  I have already NMU'ed one to
update its dependencies.  The other one, xalan, is two versions out of
date, and the latest upstream version works with xerces27.  Removal of
xerces25 in spite of this reverse dependency has been blessed by the
release team.  Thanks!

Subject: Bug#344860: fixed
Date: Thu, 12 Jan 2006 06:37:29 -0800
We believe that the bug you reported is now fixed; the following
package(s) have been removed from unstable:

libxerces25-dev |    2.5.0-7 | alpha, arm, hppa, i386, ia64, m68k, mips, mipsel, powerpc, s390, sparc
libxerces25-doc |    2.5.0-7 | all
libxerces25c2 |    2.5.0-7 | alpha, arm, hppa, i386, ia64, m68k, mips, mipsel, powerpc, s390, sparc
  xerces25 |    2.5.0-7 | source

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was superseded by another one.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
