[Ros-release] OpenCV and Broken Electric Debs

Hi everyone, it looks like something has broken the live debian releases.

Upon accepting updates (confirmed on Lucid 32 bit),
ros-electric-vision-opencv is removed (and all packages that depend on
this).  If attempting to re-install, you receive the error:

"sudo apt-get install ros-electric-vision-opencv
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  ros-electric-vision-opencv: Depends: libopencv2.3-dev (=
2.3.1+svn6514+branch23-8~lucid) but 2.3.1+svn6514+branch23-6~lucid is to be
E: Broken packages"

There appear to be several ROS answers related to this and a failed OpenCV
release related to SSE optimization:

And another related to broken installations and the specific OpenCV release:

To make matters worse, the debbuild status page is currently 503
unavailable, so I'm not sure if someone is fixing things or if that's an
unrelated problem, but I don't see anything on Hudson that looks like it's
building a fix.

Just wanted to make sure everyone was aware of this situation.
