This is questionable, there is a bug (upgrades are not possible, of
course Severity: at most important, IMHO normal) and the fact that it is
in sid or not does not matter.  And closing this bug does not help at
all users that look at the BTS to find already-reported bug, here what I
was submitting as a new bug:
--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
I found this problem yesterday morning, but then I waited until today to
be sure it was not a problem of mirror syncing (cdn.debian.net -> AKA ftp.ch.debian.org).

Basically, upgrading to the latest version in sid does not work:
gismo:~# apt-get install xserver-xorg-core xserver-xorg \
 xserver-xorg-video-intel xserver-xorg-input-evdev
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
xserver-xorg-input-evdev is already the newest version.
xserver-xorg-input-evdev set to manually installed.
xserver-xorg-video-intel is already the newest version.
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 xserver-xorg : Depends: xserver-xorg-input-all but it is not going to be installed or
 xserver-xorg-core : Breaks: xserver-xorg-input-4
                     Breaks: xserver-xorg-input-7
                     Breaks: xserver-xorg-video-6
 xserver-xorg-input-evdev : Depends: xorg-input-abi-7.0
 xserver-xorg-video-intel : Depends: xorg-video-abi-6.0
E: Broken packages

Sorry, but I do not see any explanation there which could help users to
understand what is the real problem with X.org packages.

Thanks, this does the trick:
gismo:~# apt-get install xserver-xorg-core xserver-xorg \
 xserver-xorg-video-intel/experimental xserver-xorg-input-evdev/experimental
Reading package lists... Done

Reading state information... Done
Selected version '2:2.14.0-2' (Debian:experimental [amd64]) for 'xserver-xorg-video-intel'
Selected version '1:2.6.0-1' (Debian:experimental [amd64]) for 'xserver-xorg-input-evdev'
Suggested packages:
  xfonts-100dpi xfonts-75dpi xfonts-scalable
The following packages will be upgraded:
  xserver-xorg xserver-xorg-core xserver-xorg-input-evdev xserver-xorg-video-intel
4 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 11 not upgraded.

What I would do:
--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
reopen 612471 !
retitle 612471 xserver-xorg: dependencies problem with -input-evdev and -video-intel
reassign 612471 xserver-xorg
found 612471 1:7.5+8
severity 612471 normal
block 612471 by 612137
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

I did not do anything because you are the maintainer, so I am fine if
you want to keep the situation as it is.

Thx, bye,
Gismo / Luca
