Unblocked, but only becase it was uploaded before the freeze
started. The diff is quite big, and renaming/splitting patches doesn't
help to make it more readable.

Unblocked. But all the small changes (comments, "  Homepage" instead of
" Homepage" in the descriptions, ...) should be commented in the

You're kidding, right? Please explain to me why 2/3 of the build system
need to be replaced?

No. The diff is unreadable, littered with tons of autofoo changes and
quite a lot code changes.

Then the old binary needs to be removed. I have unblocked the package,
