Wauw! Suggest to remove on 17th and executing on 21st.

I was without email during the weekend, and come back to learn that srtp 
has been dropped from Debian. Not great!

srtp brings encrypted data streams to asterisk. It is *not* the same as 
SIP over TLS (which as I understand it only secures the control 
channel). srtp have had problems beyond what I could fix, but that is 
IMHO not enough reason to drop it from Debian.
