FYI: The status of the libsmbios source package in Debian's testing distribution has changed. Previous version: 0.12.1-2 Current version: (not in testing) Hint: <http://ftp-master.debian.org/testing/hints/vorlon> # 20061118; done 20061119 Bug #399205: libsmbios-dev: where is libsmbios.so ? # new, totally broken -dev package, no grace period The script that generates this mail tries to extract removal reasons from comments in the britney hint files. Those comments were not originally meant to be machine readable, so if the reason for removing your package seems to be nonsense, it is probably the reporting script that got confused. Please check the actual hints file before you complain about meaningless removals. -- This email is automatically generated; email@example.com is responsible.
