In an email exchange with Scott Cantor, who works on this family of
libraries upstream, he stated that the v2 libraries will be EOL this
summer, and that he would advise not to ship them in a release unless
Debian will maintain them.

Based upon that information, the low popcon, and the fact that this
cluster of packages appear to be leaf packages (I can't find r-deps for
them):

 libopenws-java
 libshib-common-java
 libopensaml2-java
 libshib-parent-project2-java

I'm not going to take action to prevent the automated removal from
testing and am considering requesting that the packages be removed from
the archive.  If people are using these libraries and can make a case
for them being available in Debian, please speak up.

Cheers,
tony
