It is exactly what I am complaining!  It is not possible to follow.

The version before the March 10th is 3.4.10.  This version is free and
from 2017; with security vulnerabilities but everything is fine.

Then less than 6 days later, the package is updated to 3.4.24 which is a
non-free version.  So reverted to 3.4.10.  So re-reverted to 3.4.24.
And last, removed.

It shows exactly my point.  The correct and polite way of doing the
thing is first to examine the issue at hand (3.4.10 is old with security
vulnerabilities), then propose a fix (e.g., the removal), wait feedback,
and complete.

Whatever, now it is done.  And as I said, I am not against the removal.

All the best,
