[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: kernel-latest-powerpc
Version: 102
Severity: serious

The kernel-latest-powerpc package hasn't been updated since March 2005.
It's not the "latest" at all; its 2.6 metapackages depend on 2.6.8, which is
preventing the old 2.6.8 powerpc kernels from being removed from testing,
and its 2.4 metapackages depend on other packages that no longer exist in
unstable.  This source package appears to not serve any purpose at all

If you can confirm, please reassign this bug to to request

Steve Langasek                   Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer                   to set it on, and I can move the world.

Date: Wed, 19 Jul 2006 05:25:01 -0700
We believe that the bug you reported is now fixed; the following
package(s) have been removed from unstable:

kernel-headers |  102sarge1 | powerpc
kernel-headers-2.4 |  102sarge1 | powerpc
kernel-headers-2.6 |  102sarge1 | powerpc
kernel-image-2.4-powerpc |  102sarge1 | powerpc
kernel-image-2.4-powerpc-smp |  102sarge1 | powerpc
kernel-latest-powerpc |  102sarge1 | 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

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