Not sure what you mean by "this was the culprit".
The binNMUs should *never* have been allowed to migrate without
wireless-tools migrating first or at the same time.
The dependencies of the binNMU'ed udebs where clearly ignored, either by
britney or by the release team. If this had happened after a D-I release,
it would have broken all netboot images and weekly CDs.
What went wrong?
How will the same happening again be prevented for the future?
