Thanks for the list. As a general rule of thumb one package per bug is
easier to track, although I can appreciate that's more annoying to

It also introduces #675845, although the bug report suggests that may be
a kbsd kernel headers issue. I've given it back to see what happens.

iirc I skipped it on a recent run through looking for possible unblocks,
as it wasn't entirely clear to me why the absolute_import changes had
been added and whether they might have any non-obvious impact. They
don't appear to be in upstream's version of the fix.

The package FTBFS on mipsel and sparc, so the BTS still regards it as
affecting unstable (and therefore so does britney). I've given it back
on those architectures to see if it's more successful.

There's already a request as #686547, and an earlier mail to the
maintainers requesting a t-p-u upload

There's also a moving around of package content. The new upstream's
debian changelog is dated mid-June, but it doesn't seem to have been
uploaded until two months later. :-(
