It's a hole in my wording, which I apologize for. I'm not sure that we
specifically discussed this case. I had been assuming that the gnome
metapackage would pose the same issue, but I don't think I ever said that
I agree with Julien that there's no reason for the release-team to hold
off on unblocking the current package, since it doesn't make matters any
worse. But I also agree with Ian that I don't think this is what we
intended and we probably need to talk about it again.
