I completely understand the sentiment that we want to fix bugs instead
of going the easy way and remove packages. 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

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
