The question still stands (I’m not myself a venkman user).

That happened almost a year ago, and upstream seems stalled: no activity
in their bug tracker, no new upstream release (so this upstream RC bug
is pretty much unlikely to ever be fixed, so this package will never
make it in stable anymore).

Given the package description (JavaScript Debugger), I guess that
firebug and webdeveloper are (packaged and upstream-maintained)
alternatives worth considering.

Would anyone disagree if we ask for its removal from unstable too?
