Could you give more detail, please? Is there an ongoing transition
somehow conflicting and that could use some help? I heard about gmp, but
gmp/gmp4 (and why, which had been temporarily removed from testing) just
migrated to testing, and I didn't find any open bugs tracking this. I
haven't looked at other transitions... but I ask here because you are
supposed to be more knowledgeable :-)

According to [1], there remains stuff, though, but (on amd64 at least),
most of the packages go green after a binNMU. Obvious issues are
cheesetracker, gclcvs, genius, guile-1.8, lilypond, netrek-client-cow,
strongswan, acl2, hol88, mlgmp [I could probably "fix" that, but
haven't been notified], linbox [not sure], maxima, open-cobol,
regina-normal, units-filter [not sure]... is there anyone working on
that right now? FTR, we have far less unsolved "obvious" issues in the
planned ocaml transition, and they are documented at [2].

It would be nice if we used the power of our BTS and set blockers for
this bug (#618871), so that someone outside the release team (such as
me) can see more clearly [than "Clearly not."] what is going on.
