Thank you. However, as Torsten pointed out, it cannot go into testing
because it is linked against libgd2-xpm which has a new upstream
version, and hence tight dependency, in sid.
The changelog of libgd2 indicates that all uploads were targetted at
etch. However, I cannot find and unfreeze request, or other discussion
related to libgd2, on -release.
What are the release team's and maintainer's plans for that package?
