Please go ahead with fixing cynthiune.app and projectmanager.app in unstable
if that's not already done, and then feel free to begin this transition in
unstable. (Since this is all self-contained and you asked before anyone
else who might be starting another entangled transition, I don't think it's
a problem to start this before gnustep-gui is through NEW.)
And of course, as packages are ready to be binNMUed, please let us know.
