That's ~70% of involved packages. It's a bit high, IMHO. Can you please
report bugs against those packages with severity:important (for those
failing specifically because of libnotify 0.7) and usertag them?
AFAICS, some of them are already reported, and only need appropriate
tagging. Identifying packages that are not in testing, or that can be
easily removed (temporarily) from testing would help too.
Once the number of failures is significantly reduced, we can probably
start the transition. But, it seems a no-go for now since it would imply a
lot of work on both sides, potentially a longer transition (thus, blocking
other transitions), and doesn't seem worthy.
