Subject: vflib2: freetype1 deprecation
Date: Wed, 04 Jul 2007 22:11:54 +0200
Package: vflib2
Severity: important

for Lenny we'd like to stop supporting two freetype packages in the archive.
freetype1 has been in oldlibs for Etch, it has very few reverse deps left
and we'll try to phase it out now.
Please adapt your package, so that it links against the regular freetype

Subject: vflib2 has been removed from Debian, closing #431782
Date: Fri, 30 May 2008 16:05:10 +0100
Version: 2.25.1-20+rm

The vflib2 package has been removed from Debian testing, unstable and
experimental, so I am now closing the bugs that were still opened
against it.

For more information about this package's removal, read . That bug might give the reasons why
this package was removed, and suggestions of possible replacements.

Don't hesitate to reply to this mail if you have any question.

Thank you for your contribution to Debian.
