Saw you've uploaded "byhand: 9.0" on november 17, great!  Upload is now
displayed at https://ftp-master.debian.org/new.html.

I'll keep an eye on the progress of the NEW queue handling and plan to work on
the SGML-XML conversion.

I feel we should try to get your 9.0 in Buster, if not a newer XML-ized upload.



PS/note to self: Upload commit at

If we want to have an XMLized FAQ in Buster, we likely should do that work and
upload before the Soft-freeze at february 12th.

(* 2019-01-12 - Transition freeze (day after tomorrow)
 * 2019-02-12 - Soft-freeze
 * 2019-03-12 - Full-freeze
