xarchiver does not suggest a non-free package, only a non-existent one.

@mak Please drop our fork of xarchiver and let in the Debian package which complies fine with GNU FSDG.

When addressed, this issue should be flaged as "invalid" (not "resolved").

2018-08-25 19:33:54 - WARNING: xarchiver: Target version '1:' is newer/equal than source version '1:'.
This needs a manual dummy upload as described in https://tracker.pureos.net/T99#10198 to reset our package to what Debian ships.

Please drop forked package now, @mak

@mak yet another friendly nudge...
