[Pkg-crosswire-devel] Xiphos badly broken in the next Debian stable

The bug fixes to which that announcement refers are for release critical
bugs.  Unfortunately, the window for fixing less severe bugs has closed
quite a while back.

I have not had time to dig into any of the bugs against xiphos, but if
you would like to submit a patch, I would be happy to review it and
sponsor an upload after the release later this month.
