Bug#806735: transition: glibc

Package: release.debian.org
Severity: normal
User: release.debian.org@packages.debian.org
Usertags: transition

Dear release team,

We would like to get a transition slot for glibc 2.21. It is currently
available in experimental and has been built successfully on all release
architectures. We have fixed the hppa and mips64el build failure in the,
SVN, so the next upload should really build everywhere.

As the glibc is using symbol versioning, there is no soname change. That
said a few packages are using libc internal symbols and have to be
rebuilt for this transition:
- bro
- dante
- libnih
- libnss-db
- unscd

Here is the corresponding ben file:

title = "glibc";
is_affected = .depends ~ /libc[0-9.]* \(<</;
is_good = .depends ~ /libc[0-9.]* \(<< 2.22\)/;
is_bad = .depends ~ /libc[0-9.]* \(<< 2.20\)/;

In addition to that, a few new symbols have been added that might prevent
a few other packages to transition to testing if they pick up the new
symbols. However the new symbols are quite limited this time, so it's
unlikely to happen if the transition is done relatively quickly.
