Poking the wanna-build people on debian-wb-team@lists.debian.org works, and
surely we wouldn’t be angered. ;-) Alternatively, if a package is 10 days old
and doesn’t have RC bugs, you can inquire in debian-release@lists.debian.org
and ask why it isn’t migrating, no need to wait for two weeks. :-)

In this case, we were aware of the problem, and it’s been solved recently
via a Bin-NMU. In fact, dante has managed to migrate to testing already.

The problem was a bug in the shlibs file for glibc, causing it to create
bogus dependencies on alpha for some packages. These have been all Bin-NMUed
by Kurt Roeckx.
