Are the packages that are semi-frozen the ones that are listed in your
appendices, or does it cover other packages that need to transition too?

This confuses me a bit; I thought that 'autotrace' was in the mess too
(due to libmagick and libpstoedit transitions), and had an upload to
make it installable-in-sid planned for tonight, now that pstoedit has
been fixed again. However, autotrace appears on neither of your lists.

How should I behave in this situation? My instinct says to upload an
installable version ASAP, to prevent it from holding up the move, but
apparently it's not holding it up at all? Should I then, on the
contrary, _refrain_ from uploading until the big knot goes in, however
that will happen? Please advise.
