While I did not take care about the fallout due to time constraints on my
side, I did take a look at the meta-gnome2 migration back then.  We did not
place any approval hint but it seems that the multiple arch:all confused
britney sufficiently so that she decided to migrate those packages without
any hint at all.

Sadly I was unable to track down the bug in question and our log keeping
is currently almost non-existant.

As soon as something is copied over to testing autobuilding is automatically
stopped, which might be another bug of its own.

Kind regards,
