Work items:
Hunt down snapshot index of Debian unstable at Karmic DebianImportFreeze (http://snapshot.debian.org/archive/debian/20090625T035944Z/dists/sid/): DONE
Compare snapshot against Maverick and the sync-blacklist, and post results to ubuntu-devel (https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-devel/2010-June/030936.html): DONE
Merge everything that is badly behind: TODO
Confirm behaviour of process-removals with respect to Ubuntu deltas (it does not consider whether a package has a delta or not, and removes it anyway): DONE
Investigate changing process-removals to skip packages with Ubuntu deltas, and report the results somewhere (http://people.ubuntu.com/~cjwatson/removals-ubuntu-delta for now, currently empty): DONE
