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.

Hope to hear from you soon! Nicholas 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.
