One of the binary packages build by the musescore-2.0 source package
depends on another package that is currently not in the archive. This
means that no other binary package built from the same source package
may enter testing.

But only for architectures on which the musescore-2.0 package has not
yet been successfully built. This is the second bug that keeps
musescore-2.0 from entering testing, it fails to build on a lot of

C is a dummy package built from the same sources as A, And C's
dependency on B cannot be satisfied. This means that neither A nor C
may enter testing until this is resolved.
