Hm. I think it’d be great if you could mail each of these bugs, saying
that the upload to unstable will happen soon, and that’d it’d be great
if they could look into looking at porting their applications already.
Ideally, libmpc would be uploaded to unstable one all of these bugs have
a patch confirmed to work (eg. by uploading it to experimental with
properly versioned build-depends). That should give us some reassurance
that we’re not going to have things eternally broken in unstable.
Providing patches if, of course, one way of ensuring the transition will
happen sooner rather than later.
- Are you sure we're good?
