Ahh yes, I see.  That makes some sense... that confused me.  I think the 
debian packaging system confuses me, to see parts of 1.x on a page about 
2.x; and how all packages from a single source must have their 
dependencies met, i.e. musescore2 can't go out on amd or i386 because 
musescore-soundfont-gm depends on timgm6mb-soundfont even though 
musescore2 does not depend on it...

A pleasure, looking forward to it going out, should see an update 
tomorrow in the package tracker for TimGM6mb :).
