Okay well, you guys need to figure out what you do with this package,
because as it stands 1) it has a RC bug and 2) it is completely out of
sync with unstable. I don't understand why so many uploads were done
after stretch was frozen, but I guess you should ask the release team
for an exception at this point.

Then this patch can be added on top...
