I understand #175526 and #178645 blocking percolation to testing, but I
strongly doubt #171659 should: it is (correctly) tagged woody, sarge, sid
and thus shouldn't IMHO be counted when comparing the number of RC bugs in
the sid version to the sarge version. I'd expect to see "glibc (source) is
buggy! (2 > 0)". This seems like a bug in dak to me.
