severity 544751 normal

Dear all,

i386 and amd64 are the only platforms where staden-io-lib is developed, tested
and used. Bugs like #544751 and #541676 make me suspect that they are only the
tip of the iceberg, and I am not confident in distributing the staden-io-lib
library and utilities on other architectures. I therefore uploaded version
1.12.2-2 with ‘i386 amd64’ intead of ‘any’ in the Archit]ecture field. I have
filed appropriate requests for removal to clean Squeeze. Accordingly, I lower
the severity of #544751 to normal, since no unusable packages are produced
anymore. If Upstream starts to support other architecture, or if users are
interested in having back the removed packages on a particular architecture, it
will be my pleasure to return them. In absence of such a need, I prefer to
focus my efforts on other tasks.

Have a nice day,
