Not really. This really frustrates me with another R package that has failed
to build in November (because the arch was not having all pieces in place)
and hasn't been retried.

One can try a mail to debian-release but as Gretl is, in the grand Debian
sense, a fairly marginal package on which nothing else depends, chances may
be it just gets ignored as those guys typically have to deal with bigger and
messier transition (like C++ libraries etc) Anyway, I will CC the
debian-release list.

Eventually, this will sort itself out.  As I said before, an alternative is to
provide a local repo for your users, as silly as it seems as Debian should
just push through here.
