<p>(note: I'm just someone taking a look to see what is blocking the
unicode-data "transition", i'm not a maintainer of this package or
a member of the release team).<br>
<pre class="message">unicode-data 12.0.0 is now in unstable/testing (Buster).
gucharmap FTBFS with this;</pre>
<p>It seems upstream have updated gucharmap for unicode 12.0. It
appears that upstream releases of gucharmap are versioned based on
the version of unicode they support, with an extra element added
to the end for updates to gucharmap only. So the large increase in
gucharmap upsteam version number does not indicate massive changes
to the software.<br>
The total changes between the versions are quite voluminous, but
they appear to be mostly translation and documentation updates.
Filtering those out ( I used git clone "git clone
<a class="moz-txt-link-freetext" href="https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gucharmap/">https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gucharmap/</a>" followed by "git diff
11.0.3..12.0.1 | filterdiff -p1 -x'po/*' -x'help/*' --clean" )
seems to leave a quite reasonable remaining diff.<br>
However debian sid has now moved on from unicode 12.0 to unicode
12.1, there is an upstream bug report for 12.1 support, but so far
there doesn't seem to be any publically visible activity on it.
