Thanks. I'm a tracker.d.o user and that does not provide such info (=> #792738)

Anyway, i asked for a bit of help to the RT [0] and discovered some things,
like that autoremovals calculations is done by UDD and not anything run by them
and that it does consider also build-dependencies.

Looks like python-astropy build-dep on strip-nondetermism, and that (sadly) you
(= astro team) did [1]. Personally I find shameful that a maintainer need such
hack for a fail on our parts, please DO poke use more hardly the next time.

strip-nondetermism is already fixed in git, soon will be uploaded too, so i
think you can drop that workaround. And please accept my forgivness for this.

[0] that means nthykier and adsb, thank you!
