He did request approval for this transition on debian-release earlier in the
month, and there were no objections raised:

So based on the fact that the transition was expected to be possible using
binNMUs only, I gave him my approval off-list (on IRC).

The binNMUs have all been scheduled now, but the biggest problem looks like
it will be that this version of directfb has FTBFS on powerpc.  Guillem, do
you know about this?
