That's great news. Unfortunately, it's not that easy yet. rebootstrap
requires the relevant software to be packaged for Debian and the glibc
packaging has only reached 2.31 yet. 2.32 is not even in experimental

Trying rebootstrap with an experimental glibc is not entirely trivial,
but possible.

Aurelien (Cced via d-glibc@l.d.o), are there plans to upload 2.32 to
experimental anytime soon?

Alternatively, can we segregate the relevant diff between 2.31 and 2.32
and apply it to the unstable package without bumping the version?
