Okay, thanks. I had been looking at build logs and saw the maybe-failed
but I didn't check the status. (I didn't know about this, though I
had a bookmark to buildd.debian.net. Oops.)

Yes, it seems the most recent arm build failed, but yet the current
icu28 (2.8-3) is in testing. Perhaps someone built it manually.
There are no bugs posted again icu28.

Hmm.... what does Not-For-Us mean? My packages all had either
Architecture: any or Architecture: all, so I don't see why this would

Is this just not a big surprise because of the much-discussed long

I'd like to know that too. I don't think it's anything I did. How
would I find out?
Thanks for your helpful and thorough response.
