Currently 1.702 *is* in testing and as far as I have understood release
team they do not like any further unblocks.  When I asked for unblocking
debian-science 1.0 last week they claimed that this would be very late.

So please make sure you will discuss this with release team *right now*.
We do have *ten* days until the announced release - so even if testing
would not be frozen the normal migration process from unstable to
testing would be really dense.

I admit I should have contacted debian-edu list rather than speculating
from the changelog which was not really giving any sign for a Debian
Wheezy release and the string "wheezy-test" in the changelog seemed from
my perception to target onto those "Wheezy based SkoleLinux" releases.
The fact that


does not show any unblock request (not even for 1.703) made me quite
sure that whatever you might do now release team will probably not
accept any further change and that I see no chance for anything but
1.702 in Wheezy.

My point was to announce what versions of metapackages will be in Wheezy
and as far as can see my statement is not wrong even if it is different
from what you would like to be in Wheezy.  I'd be really happy to send
a correction of my statement if I would be wrong.

Kind regards
