All that could be done in experimental and by NMUs. That would be good, as it doesn't interfere with other transitions and thus everyone can do their work without stepping on someone else's toes :-) > If all key packages had no problems on all archs, we could > consider uploading onto sid and then dropping 8.3.

Yes, please do so. I don't see a problem to just do this transition in unstable after it was prepared in edxerimental.
