Hey Niels, all,

reality is perhaps that even though GLEW is a simple package with
typically few or no issues for it's dependencies, I guess I'm to
detached from the day-to-day evolution of Debian to maintain a package
with such a large rev-dep list. This detachment causes me to don't even
remember that I have to file a transition bug, etc, ...

Maybe I should just file a RFA for it. I'm slowly building down my
package list anyway as a gentle way towards retirement.
