The poppler transition is almost ready, and the popplerkit.framework
upload you made to fix the linkage issue has been built everywhere. This
means you can go forward with starting the GNUstep transition in
unstable, but we won’t schedule Bin-NMUs for popplerkit.framework until
poppler has been done, if that’s okay with you.
Please come by when you’ve uploaded to unstable and Bin-NMUs are needed.
