So groovebasin should have been removed from testing yesterday,
but somehow that didn't happen.

Anyway, I was wondering what ffmpeg had to do with groovebasin
and the dependency situation is:

 -> node-groove -> libgroove4 -> libavcodec-ffmpeg56 -> libsnappy1v5
 -> node-leveldown -> libsnappy1

libsnappy1v5 conflicts with libsnappy1 (one of the gcc-5 transitions).
This is blocking ffmpeg 2.8 from migrating to testing, because
the version in testing doesn't depend on libsnappy. (It is used for
the new hap decoder.)

node-leveldown still depends on libsnappy1, because it FTBFS (#798162).
The only thing required to fix this would be to package the current
version of node-leveldown (1.4.1) instead of the old 1.0.0.

Thus I'm CC'ing the maintainer of node-leveldown, Andrew Kelley.
Andrew, could you please update the node-leveldown package?

Best regards,
