thanks for asking.

Maybe it was the wrong point in time to move from dbs to quilt ...

The RC bug you mention I do not really consider as one, because it is
about reading documentation. Besides the change from dbs to quilt the
only change is the addition of a NEWS file which warns about the upgrade
of the used berkely db and that you have to do it by hand.

So the are three possibilities that I can see.

We could downgrade the RC bug.

Or you could accept the package into testing because there is no code
change and only the added NEWS file.

Or a new package with the dbs base could be uploaded with just the NEWS
file added.

What do you think?
