I've checked how this fix would concern Debian Edu:

(1) The Debian Edu Makefile has to be adjusted:

(2) Packages not available (any more) in testing are then correctly 
    demoted from Recommends to Suggests due to the $missinglist fix. (It 
    seems those have been wrongly kept as Recommends since the August 
    2017 changes.)

(3) The strong depends on gosa-plugin-netgroups needed due to Bug 
    #793667¹ (IMO cause for 'GENCONTROL_DEPENDS = true') are a non issue 
    since ages. I figure in a similar case adding information to the
    Debian Edu upgrade chapter seems to be sufficient (if a smarter
    solution isn't easy).
