However, it is not understandable for me, why a package has to be removed (due to a bug) instead of keeping the last running version, and then, when a newer and running version exists, to substitute the latest running version with the higher version.
The policy is not designed to make testing as useful for users as possible, it's designed to aid the process of making the next Stable as useful as possible. Removing a package is a strong prompt to the maintainer (or any dependent users) that this package needs more attention if it's to survive into the next stable release. -- ⢀⣴⠾⠻⢶⣦⠀ ⣾⠁⢠⠒⠀⣿⡁ Jonathan Dowland ⢿⡄⠘⠷⠚⠋⠀ https://jmtd.net ⠈⠳⣄⠀⠀⠀⠀ Please do not CC me, I am subscribed to the list.
