They should not need rebuilds *for* the gnutls13 upload.  libgnutls12 is
still present in testing and unstable, and gnutls13 should transition
smoothly into testing without requiring rebuilds of any other packages, so
there is no urgency in rebuilding anything against libgnutls13 (to my
knowledge).  It's true that any new uploads that build-depend on
libgnutls-dev will link against libgnutls13 now, but that shouldn't be a

A full transition to libgnutls13 is advisable once other libs have settled
down a bit.

I'm not sure of this.  I haven't done a comprehensive review of the packages
currently using /usr/X11R6/bin to make sure none of these packages use GNOME
libs; if any do, and if the packages are significant, a GNOME shlibs bump
could still delay the xorg transition.

So I would appreciate it if you would continue to hold off for a few days
before uploading the new evo packages, while we put together a clearer
