Quick update: three minor issues where found, two with i-s-h itself
(one solved in experimental just now about test deps uninstallability
on some ports and one piuparts seemingly false positive about
/etc/shells that I'll fix tomorrow), and one in usrmerge+nspawn+arm64
[0]. I have just come back home from LPC so did not have much time
today, will have a look at the latter two tomorrow and then upload to
unstable once the situation is clearer.
