I'm a little too lazy to dig into IRC logs, but I'm pretty sure we had
two possibilities: either keep all udeb-producing frozen and deal with
individual requests; or lift the general block-udeb. Given nothing
changed in britney1.git since Apr 14, I seemed to me we went for d-i
acks (which I've tried to handle swiftly) and that's what got me
surprised for the glibc thing.

Nothing dramatic, we'll be more explicit next time and pick an option
for real instead of considering both options and letting one pick a
favorite. :)
