Not sure where you get that idea, but given that you insist on that:

| pkern@franck ~ % dak rm -nR -s testing r-base
| Working... done.
| Checking reverse dependencies...
| # Broken Depends:
[ 175 lines ]
| # Broken Build-Depends:
[ 181 lines ]
| Dependency problem found.

I realize that you wrote the list already in your first mail, but that's
absolutely not "peripheral".

Blocking RC bug fixes in any of the packages build-depending (even indirectly)
on r-base. Well done.

Thanks for trading the R release cycle with Debian's and for delaying the
release. The harm has already been done, so somebody should probably go
and create a transition tracker for it?

Kind regards
