Bug#709885: RM: gnutls-bin [mips mipsel] -- ROM; blocks gnutls26 propagation to testing

Package: ftp.debian.org
Severity: normal


I do not know for sure whether it is possible to selectivly remove two
binary packages on specific architectures while keeping the source
packages and the other binaries built from the source. I assume it is
possible, please tell me if I am wrong.

Please remove these two *binary* packages from both unstable and
gnutls-bin [mips mipsel] 3.0.22-3+really2.12.20-6
guile-gnutls [mips mipsel] 3.0.22-3+really2.12.20-6

I want gnutls26/2.12.23-5 to propagate to testing ASAP due to #709301.
This is currently blocked by the missing build of gnutls28/3.0.22-4 on
mips/mipsel which would provide up to date gnutls-bin and guile-gnutls
binary packages. mips/mipsel therefore currently only has the old version
of gnutls-bin and guile-gnutls (3.0.22-3+really2.12.20-6, built from
gnutls26/2.12.20-6) and the transition is blocked.

After the package removal the following should happen automatically:
* libtasn1-3 2.14-3 enters testing,
* gnutls28 3.0.22-4 enters testing,
* gnutls26 2.12.23-5 enters testing.

The build error on mips/mipsel is caused by toolchain breakage on
these archs. See

thanks, cu Andreas
