Control: severity -1 normal
Control: retitle -1 allow auto-build of this package when doing a source-only upload

Hi Andreas, I've just done a binary-only upload of this package so it should appear in unstable soon. The auto-build did not fail, it was just not run in the first place because of [1] below as you noted months ago.

Hi non-free release team, any update on the below request?

> Hello,
> I've reviewed the license of this package and believe it's OK to autobuild.

> As I understand, "derivative" is unqualified here and implicitly includes auto-built binaries.
> I've added XS-Autobuild in the git repo on Alioth, please let me know when it's OK to upload the next version.
