(a) Solutions are more helpful than problems.
(b) We try to avoid having the libraries abc_3 depends on stuck in unstable.
(c) We try to avoid having abc_3 depend on libraries that're likely to

(d) We remove abc from testing.
(e) abc_2 gets uploaded to w-p-u, depending on the libraries in testing.
