You're saying I should have done a lot of packaging work and waited for
the result to go through the NEW queue, and blocked all updates to git
in the meantime?  I have to say I disagree, and I don't think that is
a more friendly approach.

Keep in mind that by request of the git-remote-bzr maintainer,
git-remote-bzr was removed from contrib/ in the upstream git package.
The code is not there in v2.0.0-rc4.  What should the git-bzr package
contain now?

I continue to believe stable and testing have a purpose different from
unstable.  If you're saying that you'd like to block this version of
git from graduating to testing until someone steps up to package
git-remote-bzr, I won't stop you from filing an RC bug to block it.

Okay.  Alas, there's no easy answer for software that people use but
no one wants to maintain.

Hope that helps,
