There hasn't been any messages to the transition bug since before the
wheezy release, I'm wondering if it will still happen and what the

Tags should be added by people uploading to the archive, after the

Please see debian-policy for definitions of Uploaders and Maintainer:

add 'Team upload' to debian/changelog.
