That information would have been helpful in the first email

Yes. Generally, I recommend people running debian testing to have both
testing and unstable in their sources.list, and pin apt to testing. In
this particular case:

siretart@hermes:~ $ grep-excuses  nexuiz
grep-excuses  nexuiz
nexuiz (2.2.3-1 to 2.3-1)
    Maintainer: Debian Games Team 
    13 days old (needed 10 days)
    out of date on sparc: nexuiz, nexuiz-server (from 2.2.3-1)
    Not considered
    Depends: nexuiz curl

Both packages have been uploaded at the same time, and I could not
forsee that it has still not been built and uploaded on sparc on time. I
think to avoid this situation in the future the correct way was to use
a versioned "Breaks" field on nexuiz-data: 

Breaks: nexuiz (<< 2.3)

apt now has support for breaks, dpkg will get it on the next upload I
think, I'm not sure if britney needs to be extended for this as well.

CC'ing debian-{games,devel}@l.d.o for comments if I'm right here.
