Uploaded. There may be a point release with translation updates
and potentially minor bugfixes at some point in the next month or so.

This is done, but I found that upstream accidentally bumped the
major version of the libgutenprint2 ABI. They are planning to release
5.2.9 with my patches for correcting the mistake. They should do this
by the weekend, but it's possible this will miss the freeze deadline.
It would be good to have a freeze exception for this--the work is all
done and tested, just waiting on the update from upstream. I can
apply my patches directly to the 5.2.8 release any upload now, or I
could wait for them to release properly.

sbuild is often used by developers who are running stable to build
packages for unstable. So it's important that the stable sbuild be
able to support all the features needed during wheezy+1 (at least as
far as that is possible). I definitely won't have this done for the
freeze--I've got to get sysvinit fixed as a priority. It's functional
as it stands, but could be better--there are quite a number of bugs
I'd like to get addressed for wheezy.
