Bug#913768: transition: glibc

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

Dear release team,

I would like to get a transition slot for glibc 2.28. It is available in
experimental for almost 3 weeks and there is no known issue or
regression. It's also the version shipped in Ubuntu 18.10. It has been
built successfully on all release architectures. It fails to builds on a
few non-release architectures, but only due to a few testsuite issues
that needs to be investigated and which do not looks really worrying.

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:
 - apitrace
 - bro
 - dante
 - libnih
 - libnss-db
 - p11-kit
 - unscd

Here is the corresponding ben file:
  title = "glibc";
  is_affected = .depends ~ /libc[0-9.]* \(<</;
  is_good = .depends ~ /libc[0-9.]* \(<< 2.29\)/;
  is_bad = .depends ~ /libc[0-9.]* \(<< 2.28\)/;

In addition a few new symbols have been added that might prevent a few
other packages to migrate to testing until glibc migrates if they pick
up the new symbols. Most of those symbols are related to C11 thread or
narrowing math functions from TS 18661-1. I doubt they are used in a lot
of packages yet.

Thanks for considering.
