Package: fabric
Version: 1.4.3-1
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

Just upgraded a system to wheezy and no fabric package?  
Nothing in backports either.  Am I missing something obvious 
or does wheezy have no fabric package?  

Best -

  I found the jessie package compiled cleanly under
 wheezy and made it available here:

    http://packages.steve.org.uk/fabric/

  While I don't necessarily expect you to trust a
 random repository on the internet you can easily
 get the source(s) and rebuild locally.

I just adopted fabric and I don't know 100% sure why it is not 
available in Wheezy.  What I have found is:

* Fabric was removed from Wheezy October 26, 2012:
http://packages.qa.debian.org/f/fabric/news/20121026T163911Z.html
but there is any reason indicated there. My wild guess is because bug #680209
with severity serious.

A new upstream version was uploaded October 30, 2012:
http://packages.qa.debian.org/f/fabric/news/20121030T000230Z.html
fixing the bug mentioned earlier.

However, Wheezy was already in deep freeze by then (it froze end of
June) and nobody asked an exception to have the new package in wheezy
to the release team. And if asked, it would have most likely rejected
due to the deep freeze.
