However Azureus has already missed two stable releases and we already had this discussion 1.5 years ago. At some point we should accept that the package is in a really bad shape and that it should not even be shipped in unstable because it is basically unusable. Mykola Nikishov pointed to the new fork BiglyBT and this one seems to be more suited for Debian anyway because they removed all those advertising crap. Since you are fine with going to NEW again and I would support anybody else who is really interested in maintaining this package, I think the removal of azureus makes sense now. Hence I would like to ask the FTP team to remove azureus from Debian due to the outstanding issues mentioned in its RC bug reports. Thank you Markus
