Bug Description

Java 5.0 will be placed into "End of Service Life" by Sun on October 30th 2009. This means no more security updates will be produced for it after that date. The sun-java5 package needs to be removed from the archive, as it will be unmaintainable after that date and security issues may appear that will be unfixable.

See:
http://www.j2ee.me/products/archive/eol.policy.html

could you please request its removal from unstable as well, so we don't have to track this for syncing?
