I scheduled some missing binNMUs yesterday and they should be in by tomorrow.
(Lists calculated through `dak rm -s unstable -bpnR libparted0' and
`dak rm -s unstable -bpnR libparted1.8-12'.)  As soon as they are in we need
a decrufting of the old libs and could try some initial hinting afterwards.

Kind regards,
