Why did you in an NMU leave out changes recently committed by the 
maintainer of a package and obviously needed? That seems highly irregular 
to me.

I also don't see (at least not from the changelog) what your change 
actually accomplished as the 01-cairo_xlib_surface_add_glyph.patch was 
already included in -3 by the maintainer.

Anyway, it is not a blocker for the migration as such, but from what I 
understand, it will probably make gtk2.0 FTBFS on next uploads.

As you are now, as NMUer, responsible for any regressions introduced by 
the NMU, I suggest you consult with the maintainer how to resolve this.
