Please preserve the subject line when replying to old bugs - Debian
contributors will often receive only your mail, out of context, and
have to look up the bug number to find out which package and which
bug you're referring to.

pango 1.43 is a new development branch, and at this point Debian
testing is in (very) hard freeze, so that new version is not suitable
for packaging for testing/unstable yet.

It might still be possible to backport the changes that fixed the bug,
or other strictly targeted, non-intrusive bug fixes. Linking to the
upstream release notes is less useful for this than linking to the
actual change. Am I right in thinking that the relevant change is
https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/pango/merge_requests/12/diffs and this
is sufficient to fix the crash?
