These two addresses are listed as the maintainer of the Debian ArgoUML
package on the web page  I
hope this email is reaching the right people.

You appear to be redistributing ArgoUML version 0.19.6.  You should be aware
that any odd numbered release such as 0.19, 0.15, etc is an unstable
developer release making it a poor candidate for redistribution.  It looks
like up until 2004, Debian was choosing the correct releases, but then
somehow lost the thread for the 0.16, 0.18, and 0.20 releases.  Since 0.20
was released in February, bug reports against 0.19.6 are probably just going
to get answered "please upgrade to a current release."

I'd encourage Debian to only redistribute stable releases.  They are the
only ones which get focused testing.
