MBF: please drop transitional dummy package foo (if they were part of two releases or more)




Hi,

I'm doing an small mass bug filing against obsolete transitional packages
which are at least marked "dummy transitional" since the jessie release,
though many of them existed already in wheezy. I think it's rather undoubtful
those are normal bugs we want to get rid off.

According to a script of mine there are 102 such packages without bugs filed
left (see dd-list below) and 71 such bugs I have already filed. Plus there are
33 packages which were transitional dummy packages in jessie and stretch and
are gone from sid!

(My script ignores iceweasel*, icedove*, thunderbird* lightning* and 
multiarch-support as those are… special.)

This is an example bug: (though the 2nd paragraph is rather exceptional.)

(This is #878536.)
 
I'm currently undecided whether I think it's useful to file wishlist bugs
against transitional dummy packages which only are that since stretch. What do 
you think? Probably it's more useful to file wishlist bugs against packages
depending on those… or should those be normal severity?
