Hi release team, NetworkManager 0.7 and related packages (vpn plugin, GNOME/KDE frontend) are all ready for migrating to testing. As libnm-util had a soname bump (0->1), and gnome-main-menu, which still links against libnm-util0, is the only package no yet updated , this transition is blocked. I'd thus like the release team to either force NM and related packages into testing or remove gnome-main-menu from testing, so it can migrate automatically. As gnome-main-menu also builds the libslab0 library, which is used by gnome-control-center, I'd like to hear the release teams (g-c-c maintainers CCed) opinion on how to best proceed from here. I considered to NMU gnome-main-menu and disable NetworkManager support, but unfortunately this is not easily possible without heavy patching. Imho the best solution would be, to package the latest upstream version, which has support for NM 0.7. I don't feel up to doing that myself in a NMU and will leave that to Riccardo, the gnome-main-menu maintainer. As I don't want to wait for such a potential upload of gnome-main-menu and I'd like the NM 0.7 packages get into squeeze as soon as possible, I'm asking for advice about the release teams preferred approach.
