Hi Norbert, Matthias, and Backports Team,

I've prepared the backports for lxml and html5-parser needed for a bpo
of calibre and a sponsored upload is required.  Please let me know if
you prefer that I file formal RFSes.  Norbert, I've also done a
backport of calibre 3.16.0+dfsg-1 and have created a stretch-backports
branch on your salsa project.  Links:

 -> stretch-backports branch

 -> stretch-backports branch

I am currently rebuilding calibre with "-sa" because mentors rejected
the upload.

Hope to hear from you soon!

P.S. Is anyone else working on that python-regex bug that will
autoremove calibre from testing sometime soon?  I'm going to try
taking a stab at it this evening, and will share results sometime in
the next few hours.
