No problem, mistakes happen. I don’t think an epoched upload is
warranted. It’s a small transitions, and does not intersect with any of
the upcoming transitions, so it’s okay.
It does intersect however with poppler, via pdf2djvu and koffice. But
these two have already been rebuilt for poppler, and will be able to
migrate soon. It’s a matter of not scheduling the graphicsmagick Bin-NMUs
before that. (Bcc'ing -wb-team just in case.)
I guess you’ll need a second sourceful upload to fix the current FTBFS.
Once that’s in place, we’ll take it from there.
