I wouldn't say the problem is fixed. There's been some proposals on how to
resolve it but afaik not action yet. Although the tresholds for requires
votes were lowered to iirc 3 votes from testers or 6 otherwise. The main
problem still is not enough people doing testing. The discussion needs to
be resuccerted. I would keep the discussion here and not have in the
testing squad list since this is not only a tester thing.

A bit hard package to test. It isn't very clear how to actually use it. so
I'd guess that's why it hasn't been tested by that many. Anyway, I tried it
and seems there's a missing dependency in the package since apt-woodchuck
command raises a missing import exception (gconf) so I just voted it down.
