you have to scroll to the end of the report to see it.

Thanks, but it seems that the report was re-ordered for a couple of
days, but it has now reverted back to the broken deps being at the

All the feedback on this list was positive about the change (and
indeed seems to have raised the general level of awareness of broken
deps as evidenced by the followup posts about broken deps), so I'm
wondering why it was reverted?

I would imagine it was never changed in code yet, so not reverted either.

But personally.. I'd still like to see the 'new packages' section at the very top as well because for the most part users will not be aware of these packages to test them if they are not highlighted in that way. I think from the standpoint of getting best testing feedback, the best ordering would be:
*new packages
*broken deps
