Bug#974970: src:fonts-urw-base35: fails to migrate to testing for too long: Depends on version of ghostscript that's not migrating

Source: fonts-urw-base35
Version: 20170801.1-3
Severity: important
Control: close -1 20200910-1
Tags: sid bullseye
User: release.debian.org@packages.debian.org
Usertags: out-of-sync
Control: block -1 by 970878
Control: affects 970878 src:fonts-urw-base35

Dear maintainer(s),

As recently announced [1], the Release Team now considers packages that
are out-of-sync between testing and unstable for more than 60 days as
having a Release Critical bug in testing. Your package
src:fonts-urw-base35 in its current version in unstable has been trying
to migrate for 62 days [2]. Hence, I am filing this bug. Because I know
that your package can't migrate due to ghostscript (which is a key
package) not migrating, I filled this bug as important instead of the
normal severity serious. Please coordinate with the ghostscript
maintainer to fix the situation. We may raise the severity of this bug
to serious later.

If a package is out of sync between unstable and testing for a longer
period, this usually means that bugs in the package in testing cannot be
fixed via unstable. Additionally, blocked packages can have impact on
other packages, which makes preparing for the release more difficult.
Finally, it often exposes issues with the package and/or
its (reverse-)dependencies. We expect maintainers to fix issues that
hamper the migration of their package in a timely manner.

I have immediately closed this bug with the version in unstable, so if
that version or a later version migrates, this bug will no longer affect
testing. I have also tagged this bug to only affect sid and bullseye, so
it doesn't affect (old-)stable.
