Due to the block-udeb set in place, packages with udebs that got the
automatic freeze exception cannot migrate. But I didn't request an
unblock for one of those packages (libbsd, but this affects other
packages as well) because I understood it was preferred to avoid udeb
unblocks until after the d-i beta release. Given the above notice,
should I proceed with such request?
