abandoned upstream, and other bugs (#885875,
#885876, #885877)

Here is an exerpt of a message related to #885875:
I contacted Seelablet's author: he will not maintain this package in a
foreseeable future. On reason is that the hardware addressed by the
package seelablet is discontinued, and that he developped an new
hardware, known as expeyes17, with similar features, and which already
has received a noticeable success.

As expeyes17 is supported by the debian package eyes17, which I
maintain, I think that the bes solution would be to ask for the removal
of seelablet from debian/sid and debian/buster.

As there are less than a hundred users of Seelablet box in the world,
its author says me that he can support these users with a custom
package, while a package in debian/stretch would be less useful. So this
package may be removed from debian/stretch too.

Thank you in advance.

We believe that the bug you reported is now fixed; the following
package(s) have been removed from stable:

python-seelablet |    1.0.6-2 | all
python3-seelablet |    1.0.6-2 | all
 seelablet |    1.0.6-2 | source, all
seelablet-common |    1.0.6-2 | all
seelablet-doc |    1.0.6-2 | all

------------------- Reason -------------------
RoM: abandoned upstream; broken

Note that the package(s) have simply been removed from the tag
database and may (or may not) still be in the pool; this is not a bug.
The package(s) will be physically removed automatically when no suite
references them (and in the case of source, when no binary references
it).  Please also remember that the changes have been done on the
master archive and will not propagate to any mirrors until the next
dinstall run at the earliest.

Packages are usually not removed from testing by hand. Testing tracks
unstable and will automatically remove packages which were removed
from unstable when removing them from testing causes no dependency
problems. The release team can force a removal from testing if it is
really needed, please contact them if this should be the case.

Bugs which have been reported against this package are not automatically
removed from the Bug Tracking System.  Please check all open bugs and
close them or re-assign them to another package if the removed package
was superseded by another one.

The version of this package that was in Debian prior to this removal
can still be found using

Thank you for reporting the bug, which will now be closed.  If you
have further comments please address them to
