Thanks, but I already use the wiki page as starting point (noone can
expect me to actually remember the BTS URIs for the usertagged reports,
right?)

The problem right now is that the situation wrt testing migration isn't
too rosy anyway at the moment, seeing how we are blocked by ghc6,
openexr/kdelibs, suitespare/openoffice.org (which is now in turn stuck
ehin kdelibs) and some other transitions. The moment perl5.10 has been
uploaded to unstable, we will need to basically freeze unstable for a
few days to get it through to testing without entangling it with other
transitions.

Brendan, have you already planned a perl upload to unstable?

Yes. Ardo, could you update libxml-parser-perl with the workaround
proposed in <47C22AC9.1050300@ardolabs.com>?
