The procedure depends on Debian Git Repository [1]. But there is no

You can just merge the experimental branch.

I would like to ask when is planned to introduce grass 8.0.0-1 to
Debian expr [2]?

The new major version suggests that gdal-grass & qgis will need changes to work with GRASS 8, so I'm not in a hurry to get it into Debian.

GRASS 7.8.7-rc1 is currently in experimental, once the final release is out the package will be moved to unstable.

After that I'll rebuild libgdal-grass & qgis with grass 8 to see what breaks, if nothing breaks it could be moved to unstable reasonably soon.

If libgdal-grass and/or qgis need changes, I'll likely keep GRASS 8 only in git until those changes are available, and keep experimental available for further 7.8.x release candidates.

That's requires you to redo all the packaging changes too, which doesn't make sense.
