Source: breezy
Version: 3.3.0+bzr7661-2
Severity: serious
User: debian-ci at lists.debian.org
Usertags: regression

Dear maintainer(s),

With a recent upload of breezy the autopkgtest of breezy fails in 
testing when that autopkgtest is run with the binary packages of breezy 
from unstable. It passes when run with only packages from testing. In 
tabular form:

                        pass            fail
breezy                 from testing    3.3.0+bzr7661-2
versioned deps [0]     from testing    from unstable
all others             from testing    from testing

I copied some of the output at the bottom of this report.

Currently this regression is blocking the migration to testing [1]. Can 
you please investigate the situation and fix it?

[0] You can see what packages were added from the second line of the log 
file quoted below. The migration software adds source package from 
unstable to the list if they are needed to install packages from 
breezy/3.3.0+bzr7661-2. I.e. due to versioned dependencies or
