Before the package was masked for removal, I was fairly convinced that
it was fine. Then I noticed that you have different opinions.

If "<linux-headers-…" dependencies violate policy, then I would like to
read the authoritative document which describes that policy. If
downgrading linux-headers breaks systems, then I would like to hear
about incidents where this actually happened. My Google-fu is apparently
too weak to find these.

If the policy is not clear on the matter then removal against
maintainer's consent is not justified. If the breakage is only
hypothetical then not even a p.mask is justified IMO (though I
understand that QA can mask packages at their discretion without needing
any reason).


Best regards,
