Source: breezy-debian
Version: 2.8.51
Severity: serious
Control: close -1 2.8.63

User: release.debian.org at packages.debian.org
Usertags: out-of-sync

Dear maintainer(s),

The Release Team considers packages that are out-of-sync between testing
and unstable for more than 60 days as having a Release Critical bug in
testing [1]. Your package src:breezy-debian has been trying to migrate
for 237 days [2]. Hence, I am filing this bug.

If a package is out of sync between unstable and testing for a longer
period, this usually means that bugs in the package in testing cannot be
fixed via unstable. Additionally, blocked packages can have impact on
other packages, which makes preparing for the release more difficult.
Finally, it often exposes issues with the package and/or
its (reverse-)dependencies. We expect maintainers to fix issues that
hamper the migration of their package in a timely manner.

This bug will trigger auto-removal when appropriate. As with all new
bugs, there will be at least 30 days before the package is auto-removed.

I have immediately closed this bug with the version in unstable, so if
that version or a later version migrates, this bug will no longer affect
testing. I have also tagged this bug to only affect sid and bookworm, so
it doesn't affect (old-)stable.

Your package is blocked because the arch:all binary package(s) aren't
built on a buildd. Unfortunately the Debian infrastructure doesn't allow
arch:all packages to be properly binNMU'ed. Hence, I will shortly do a
no-changes source-only upload to DELAYED/15, closing this bug. Please
let me know if I should delay or cancel that upload.

I just filed an RC bug against breezy, which also needs to be fixed for
breezy-debian to migrate.
