Satisfying build-deps in testing
I think build-deps currenlty only need to be satisfied in sid, but they
might need to be satisfied in testing too at a later time in the
release cycle, is this correct?
I ask because of gnome-games which had a versionned build-dep on
binutils (because it used --as-needed), and currently a fixed binutils
exist for all arches in unstable, but can't migrate to testing due to
FTBFSes. The gnome-games is in the "dep-wait" state, and I asked
buildd maintainers to reset that state; Robert Bihlmeyer requested in
#334491 to reinstate that build-dep.
Hence, I need to clear that issue both for closing #334491 and to
convince the mips/mipsel buildd maintainers.
Please note that other packages than gnome-games have been uploaded
with --as-needed, without the build-dep, and probably reached testing.
