The Release Team was super quick, so we've managed to kick off the
transition to GDAL 2.1.1 on the same day of its release.

Hopefully there won't be any delays for the rebuilt affected packages to
transition to testing, as qmapshack (1.6.2-1) introduces a serious issue
causing data loss for new users (#831297). If there is a delay, I'll
probably do an upload to testing-proposed-upstream with the fix like for
the backport.
