fixed python2.4-numarray and python2.4-meric-ext to prefer 
lapack3/refblas3, which already is in main. needs sync from incoming 
(Aug 15).

Are explicit reports needed for each dictionary?

sorting out the aspell dependencies with Martin.

we should drop isdnutils, and keep isdnutils-base, ipppd, isdnlog, 
isdnutils-doc, isdnutils-xtools

uploaded to prefer refblas3 over atlas3-base

yes, although not yet functional.

yes, requested removal.

sure. requesting sync from unstable

not yet. libc6-dev-amd64 still has problems, as it looks, a solution 
would require to replace the headers in libc6-dev (on i386) with the 
x86_64 headers. needs some work, coordinating with Jeff Bailey.

yes, will do.

build dependency of gcc-4.0

hplip is the recommended driver at least for the office jets.

yes, the *hyph* packages need to be removed, on my list.

openoffice.org2-dev openoffice.org2-dev-doc: already in main, they can 
stay there.
openoffice.org2-officebean: never used it, maybe give the same status as 
the -dev packages?

that is a build dependency of expect-tcl8.3, which is a build dependency 
of gcc-4.0 on hppa. Should be go in automatically, after the myterious 
build failures on the buildd's go away:
