This can be downgraded, IMO (I filed it).  The maintainer and I agreed
that it can wait for woody or r1.  We can re-upgrade the severity after
potato release.

I sent a new patch to the maintainer a few weeks ago.  Should I NMU this
at this point?

Can we remove gnucash debs from Alpha until r1?  I backported a fix for
Alpha, but John says there's more to it and it's too late in the release
cycle to mess with it now.

I binary NMU'ed this (in incoming), but the source package should be

Another one that I can NMU if needed.  The patch is small and doesn't
affect other archs.

Slightly OT, but can we remove the regular lilypond deb from the Alpha
tree?  It has bad deps and the new version doesn't build on Alpha.

Also needs to be removed from the Alpha tree (bad deps).  I've got a fix
for building it already, but it needs further debugging due to segfaults
while loading files.

Binary NMU'ed and in incoming.  Again, the source package should be fixed,
but we can live with the NMU getting installed for release.
