Since the script works by processing the Debian archive removal log, and
that tracks removals of packages from unstable and experimental /not/
testing, it doesn't. I'm also not sure that would give us any better input
than what we have right now, since packages can be removed for testing for
transient issues (incl. issues that aren't bugs in that package itself).
Steve Langasek Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
