Please inform the architecture porters for the affected architectures.

I don't think the more or less defunct Debian GNOME Team to have
resources to handle this or atleast not make it high enough in
priority to do arch porting work.
Preferably the arch porters will work this out with upstream
(and for extra bonus keep making sure there are people working
in collaboration with upstream to make sure arch specific problems
doesn't arise again). Ping the Debian GNOME Team again with which
commits should be cherry-picked once they're merged upstream.

Another option would be to have the (likely massive) reverse dependency
tree of packages removed on these architectures, but I guess you'll
have a hard time convincing the ftp-team of going through that and
removing everything so I guess that's only a theoretical option.
