Dropped squid transitional package blocks -proposed migration

Bug #1211942 reported by Robie Basak on 2013-08-13
This bug affects 1 person
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
squid3 (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

From the changelog for 3.3.4-1ubuntu1:

  * Dropped:
    - debian/control: Dropped transitional packages from squid, no
      longer required.

Doing this makes sqcwa and squid-prefetch uninstallable in saucy, since they depend on "squid". This is preventing migration of 3.3.4-1ubuntu1 to saucy. See: http://people.canonical.com/~ubuntu-archive/proposed-migration/update_output.txt

It seems to me that we still need the "squid" transitional package, and am not sure of the reasoning that it is no longer required.
