Why is this package missing from the repos, but installed in my
stretch install?

This also looks like a core security-type package, so, concerning!

Well that's the question - how do I figure out the problem?

Perhaps there's some dodgy Debian mirroring going on?

Again, when I look at that packages.debian.org link above, the
package no longer exists in stable, so how can it be that over 100
other packages recursively depend on this package, when it's missing?

Hopefully someone can steer me in the right debugging direction...

Thank you for the links.

For a given repo, I only have one primary clone or mirror. I have
various such local repos.

For GnuBee docs (or any other repo) I only clone it once, either with
plain clone, or with --mirror, never both - once I have a --mirror
repo locally available, I then either:

 - clone it to a "working dir", or

 - browse it insitu with git-ls

Hope that makes sense...
