No problem. Anyway I'm sorry for the delay, as I left for 4 days or so
and was expecting to have net access. Also I asked for the transition
taking into account d-i, but missed the fact that libcairo was used by
it, and thought that the whole g-i was using the old forked 0.9.22. This
raises the issue that the libcairo udeb probably should not be using the
latest one in sid (until g-i moves back to it), or g-i will end up
linking against two different directfb versions.

Yes I noticed that just before leaving and was expecting to sort it
out sooner. I also told that to Steve on #debian-release on the 27th.
I've uploaded now fixed packages with medium urgency.
