Here's a follow-up, as some slightly strange things happened in testing
last night which bear explaining.

kdebase/s390 was built - somehow, and I think by hand - so last night
the testing scripts considered meta-kde, kdeaddons, kdebase, and
kdegames as "valid candidates". (This means that they don't have obvious
problems that bar them from testing, but they may still fail if
promoting the new packages results in more uninstallable packages than
While kdeaddons, kdebase, and kdegames are still waiting for other
things to happen, meta-kde was upgraded in testing. The reason for this
was that it was actually already uninstallable there, so upgrading it
didn't make the situation any worse. You can see at

As for the remaining things to happen before jack-audio-connection-kit
and alsa-lib can be promoted, which will include kdeaddons, kdebase, and
ardour needs to be built on arm
gst-plugins needs to be built on mipsel
gst-plugins is 2 days old; needs 10
libjackasyn has just had bug #232605 fixed, which needs to be built
redland is waiting for perl
perl needs to be built on m68k, but has problems (#233175)

So, getting there ...
