I would like to move lirc from [testing] to [extra] soon. Here is a
draft news item ("Packaging changes in lirc 0.9.2"):

    For consistency with upstream naming, the lirc-utils package was
    renamed to lirc. The wpc8769l kernel drivers were dropped and can be
    obtained by installing [lirc-wpc8769l from

    Note that 0.9.2 is a major release and comes along with several
    upstream and packaging changes. In particular, the `irexec.service`
    systemd unit was removed. Please edit and copy the template
    `/usr/share/lirc/contrib/irexec.service` if you want to keep using
    that service.
