Less cruft for a better release

with 2 comments

Now that Squeeze is frozen, and release date is approaching, removing unused and buggy packages from the archive is a nice task to save maintenance burden which often involves several people (QA guys and Release Managers, mostly).

A lot of removal bugs are coming to pseudo-package, so I’d like to thank fellow contributors who spent part of their time on this task. A special thank goes to Moritz Muehlenhoff, who filed tons of bugs, and contributed to remove a lot of unused packages.

If you’re interested too, you could look at these guidelines.

Keep up the good work, guys!
