Oops. Got my dates wrong. Sorry.

The gossip upload was made:
Date: Sun, 03 Aug 2008 16:52:40 +0200

It migrated Fri, 03 Oct 2008 16:39:16 +0000

There's no sign of a request on the debian-release mailing list (Sep or
Oct 08).

I'm assuming there are records of unblocks beyond the mailing list
archive?

As that bug doesn't affect testing, it is not exactly a priority for
bug fixes prior to the release.

Is it worth investigating why britney got it wrong and whether
gossip 1:0.30-1 can be reinstated?

$ rmadison libloudmouth1-0
....
libloudmouth1-0 |    1.4.0-1 |       testing | alpha, amd64, arm,
armel, hppa, i386, ia64, mips, mipsel, powerpc, s390, sparc
libloudmouth1-0 |    1.4.2-1 |      unstable | alpha, amd64, arm,
armel, hppa, hurd-i386, i386, ia64, m68k, mips, mipsel, powerpc, s390,
sparc

How did gossip migrate with Build-Depends on a version of
libloudmouth1-0 that still does not exist in Lenny?
