The other solution, which Niels has suggested, is just replacing the
updated packages. Since most people haven't been able to install them,
this is a quick win (no real redefinition of what the version *is*).

We could then approach it as:

  1) Email all developers you have successfully built packages
     since 2010-03-24 outlining them of the situation and the
     actions about to be taken. (Preferably linking to the
     maemo.org/packages/ pages for the packages they've uploaded)

  2) Swap in the rebuilt versions, with the same version number,
     from the test/experimental/staging area Niels built:


  3) Re-index the repo.

  4) Resolve https://bugs.maemo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=9752

Indeed. I'm not aware of any extensive testing apart from a few
packages on my PR1.1.1 device. Javier/Niels?
