OTOH, bug #199810 has been open since 2001; if we let all of the RC
licensing bugs linger because we have a few months before the freeze, we'll
get to the freeze and still need to repack all the orig.tar.gz's for the
upstreams that /didn't/ move on this issue due to lack of pressure from us.

Good, thanks!

Ok, please stay with this.  As you can see from the now-fixed bts.tz.net
pages :), an updated twin is needed to fix a different FTBFS that affects
testing, so without a fixed twin on mips* the package will need to be

If it reaches a point where you believe it's better to remove the package
from testing because the mips fix is taking too long, please let us know.

Well, I already told you that you don't get extra credit for extra hints,
either. ;)  Though of course, more hints are always welcome, to keep
packages flowing into testing as quickly as is reasonable.
