Note that the package(s) have simply been removed from the tag

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

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

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
