Hi Dirk and everybody,

my pace is aproximately one package per day, partly because instead of
rebuilding I take the opportunity to upgrade when new upstream releases are
available (and as you noted, a lot accumulated during the Freeze).

Everybody's help is welcome, especially for the trivial rebuilds.  We have our
packages managed in Subversion and Git repository, but if this is bothering, I
think that we can cut corners with a simple NMU with no changes, that will be a
branch in the version tree.

Also, for the architecture-dependant packages, we can request binary NMUs,
although I have been reluctant to do so in order to not disturb the Release

For ggplot2, we are working on the update (#700862), but it needs the
introduction of new packages (r-cran-gtable, accepted this week, and
r-cran-scales, to be uploaded).  For the short term, I just uploaded a NMU to
rebuild the package.

Have a nice Sunday,
