Dear maintainer(s),

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

                        pass            fail
nrepl-clojure          from testing    0.9.0-1
cljx-clojure           from testing    0.6.0-3
all others             from testing    from testing

I copied some of the output at the bottom of this report. I *think* the 
  error says that the package needs to be updated to accept a newer 
nrepl-clojure. I'm not familiar with clojure so I might have interpreted 
things wrongly.

Currently this regression is blocking the migration of nrepl-clojure to 
testing [1]. Of course, nrepl-clojure shouldn't just break your 
autopkgtest (or even worse, your package), but it seems to me that the 
change in nrepl-clojure was intended and your package needs to update to 
the new situation.

If this is a real problem in your package (and not only in your 
autopkgtest), the right binary package(s) from nrepl-clojure should 
really add a versioned Breaks on the unfixed version of (one of your) 
package(s). Note: the Breaks is nice even if the issue is only in the 
autopkgtest as it helps the migration software to figure out the right 
versions to combine in the tests.
