We should file those bugs now with an explanation of the problem.
You should also upload texinfo/i-i now given that it has to go through

Yeah, I waited your come-back, I didn't want to start this while you were
not available. We haven't had much feedback but I hope I cleared the
problems seen by Steve with my explanations on how they were already adressed.

The only problem is that britney ignores Breaks and that the release team
might have to migrate info browsers together with the newer dpkg to avoid
uninstallable combinations in testing.
