it is good news to read that there is a solution being found. However, I
am a bit confused because previous messages were suggesting that the
problem was disk speed, not downtime.
In the meantime, could the release team do us the favor of letting the
packages migrate? I just got a message from a user who wants to use one
of the blocked packages (emboss), and I am just so ashamed to answer him
that he has to use unstable just because it is not built on a platform
where nobody is using it.
Please. Our work is left aside for no benefit, and if I understand
correctly, transiently allowing the migration is just a matter of
changing a configuration file two times.
Have a nice day,
