Also, bugs cloed by dak rm are closed with a version of 1.2.3-1+rm (with 1.2.3-1 the version of the source removed, I believe the highest when multiple versions of the same source were removed at the same time). So you query for bugs closed with a version containing '+rm'. This is documented in devref. DAK removal logs are usually more parsable, of course. :) -- regards, Mattia Rizzolo GPG Key: 66AE 2B4A FCCF 3F52 DA18 4D18 4B04 3FCD B944 4540 .''`. more about me: https://mapreri.org : :' : Launchpad user: https://launchpad.net/~mapreri `. `'` Debian QA page: https://qa.debian.org/developer.php?login=mattia `-
