Right. I was wondering why Andreas didn't contact the Release Team to have
our opinion on the subject. IMO, it qualifies as an RC bug and the
diff (0.7.8 → 0.7.9) doesn't look huge. It's even reasonable and acceptable,
once documentation changes are ignored.

So, if you prepare a package and upload it to unstable, I would unblock it
(only if the diff is strictly updating to this new version + any other
change matching the criterias described in [1]).
