Increasing the testing migration delay


tl;dr: see "how to request" further down this mail

As announced[1] we have set a mandatory 10-day delay for packages wishing to
migrate from unstable to testing.

Only members of the release team can override this, and will do so on
request for security fixes and other severe issues.

If you have a package currently in unstable with urgency!=low, and it
hasn't yet migrated, we have preserved its planned migration time so you do
not need to request an override.

How to request an override

Please use reportbug to file an 'unblock' bug against release.debian.org.
You need to provide the package details, version, and a one-line
justification (including bug numbers). You don't need to provide a debdiff
until the main freeze starts.

Don't send mail to debian-release@lists.debian.org or poke us on IRC.
These requests are difficult to track and we don't want anybody to be
left wondering.

You only need to do this if you want the 10-day age period to be reduced.
If 10 days is suitable, you don't need to do anything else (provided your
package migrates naturally before 5th November 2014).
