Don't you think it's a little bit too late in the development cycle of
Bullseye to do this? Also, if you're doing a mass-bug-filling, why
hasn't this discuss in debian-devel? Did I miss it? Has this been
discussed with the release team? Why acting now when the bug was open
last April?

I'm also surprised of the severity of #958117. The fact that a package
has lost upstream doesn't have to be of severity "grave", and IMO
shouldn't justify filling RC bugs on 84 packages (that's how many
reverse-depends -b node-uglify reveals) a few weeks from the freeze.

I'm afraid it's going to be ... ugly ! :)

Your thoughts?
