updating this morning (on autopilot -- i believed nothing had changed),
i was told

$ tlmgr update --all
tlmgr: package repository [local link to cambridge ctan]/systems/texlive/tlnet
tlmgr: saving backups to /local/texlive/2012/tlpkg/backups
skipping forcibly removed package biblatex-dw
skipping forcibly removed package context-gnuplot
[1/1, ??:??/??:??] update: texlive-docindex [187k] (27070 -> 27078) ... done
tlmgr: package log updated at /local/texlive/2012/texmf-var/web2c/tlmgr.log

what does this "skipping" mean?  neither package has been removed
(kpsewhich finds them); there's nothing in tlmgr.log about them.

is the ctan mirror (which i maintain) not up-to-date (today's rsync
mirror from the master site pulled rather little)?

[aka "confused of cambridge"]
