that reverts an incorrect replacement from wheezy222testing to
oldstable22testing in the 0.76 changelog entry
(you could add a changelog in 0.77 for the rename)

yes, the script that is only used by sid-bl (and is new in 0.77, so
already has a changelog entry)

it misses all the new cool features :-)
and it hasn't seen any testing since it was uploaded :-(
its not the version that helped shaping stretch over the last weeks

I think stretch will be better with 0.77 (or 0.78, unless a release
happens first). If we manage to encourage more people to use it, they
should use something thats nearer to our production instance (hmm, they
should rather use backports^Wgit anyway), to be able to reliably
reproduce problems.

I know a line must be drawn somewhere ... but given a popcon of <insert
numbers> ... I'd still like to hear the RT opinion on this

The diff is not too bad:
42 files changed, 1044 insertions(+), 318 deletions(-)
