Hi Eric,

We have an upload with new binaries stuck in the NEW queue for a month
now: https://ftp-master.debian.org/new/nvidia-graphics-drivers_355.11-3.html
Until this gets in, we can't move on unfortunately.

Please use the 352 series that's available in unstable - experimental
will keep being wild for a while, as there are many new binary
packages as a result of upstream changes (libglvnd etc).

Sorry for the inconvenience.


is there anything we can do to speed up the approval of 355.11-3 so
that it moves on from the NEW queue?

Kind regards,
Luca Boccassi
