Bin-NMUs scheduled. We have tools to calculate the list of packages to
rebuild, so unless there's something particular to mention about any of
them ("don't Bin-NMU X because foo", or "X and Y need a rebuild, but X
depends on Y"), you need not mention anything else than "please schedule
the Bin-NMUs". :-)
Also there's no need to CC the affected packages, unless there's
something the maintainers need to be aware of.

Only powerpc had not built libexiv2-5 by the time you uploaded
merkaartor. Fortunately, libexiv2-4 had been decrufted already, so the
build on powerpc failed; I've given it back now. (Additionally, it's not
very worrysome if an architecture builds your package against the old
library; scheduling an addditional Bin-NMU is quite cheap.)
