Thanks for the clarification. I assume that my package libitpp6, which
Build-Depends on lapack3-dev, should become libitpp6gf, at least for
experimental. Note that this is even though I do not explicitly
Build-Depend on g77.

I shall also get in touch with some other maintainers who maintain
some packages I am interested in, and request them to prepare an
upload for experimental.

Well, I shall definitely ask you to do the experimental uploads, if my
regular sponsor has problems uploading it. Many thanks for this offer!
