Subject: RM: zinc-compiler -- dead upstream; RC-buggy
Date: Wed, 08 Nov 2006 21:54:43 +0100
Severity: normal

This package has been marked as RFA days ago (see #394562).

#394562 says:

  -- snip --

  Upstream has expressed his intention to do not continue Zinc's development, 
  and hasn't got enough time to fix RC bugs like #393823 or important bugs 
  like #390880.

  Popcon counter points that zinc-compiler lacks interest to Debian users.

  I'm not interested in continue maintaining this package, if nobody is 
  interested, I will orphan it and, later, recommend its deletion from
  Debian archive.

Nobody seems interested in continue package maintenance, please remove 
zinc-compiler from the archives.

Thank you,

package(s) have been removed from unstable:

zinc-compiler |    1.0.2-6 | source, alpha, amd64, hppa, i386, ia64, m68k, powerpc, s390, sparc

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
