m68k should just be ignored for these purposes; the arch is doing much
better than in past months, but it's still not quite keeping up to the point
that we're checking installability counts there.

I would suggest that it's more useful to begin tracking down these
applications (and most likely binNMUing them) as soon as the c2a libs are in
place, as the only other libraries that haven't transitioned are either
negligible or have limited arch-specific failures.

You might want to use
saves you the trouble of trying to keep your own list updated.  (I haven't
quite got the syntax of that URL copied quite right from the example I was
using, though; I don't think we really want pending bugs listed under

On what package?  Anyway, it looks like a buildd issue.

Don't see this bug anywhere either.

Actually, for a first iteration I'm going through each of the transitioned
libs one by one, looking at the reverse-deps of the previous lib name (on
i386 only), and scheduling binNMUs for those packages if all of their
affected build-deps have transitioned.

I'd be happy for someone to feed me a list of remaining packages in need of
rebuilds; in the meantime this should get about 90% of the affected
packages, and if nothing else britney will tell us about the other 10% when
the time comes.
