There wasn't that much terminology in there. :-)
Essentially, a member of the release team needs to decide that they're
happy with the changes between the current version of open-iscsi in
testing and the version in unstable. The size of the changes means that
it'll take some time to go through. Reducing the size of that job by
producing a filtered diff that excludes e.g. documentation and
test-suite changes would likely help. Unless the udeb changes touched
anything outside of debian/ (which I would suspect they didn't) then
dropping those changes now is unlikely to make any material difference
to the size of the diff.
