Some new dependencies made it out of NEW (please note that packages
waiting in NEW should not have stopped us from uploading to experimental
anyway), and AFAICT, there is no documented blockers anymore.

Sorry for being pushy, but we’re now about a month from the freeze, and
such a new version (3.7 -> 4.2) may be pretty disruptive. There is a
handful of dependencies against phpunit in the archive, but there are
over 50 build-dependencies! We must have some time to discover any
actual pitfall, and some time to fix the eventual regressions. One month
for that is already pretty short, I wouldn’t be comfortable to wait any
longer to upload a new version (the alternative would be to live with
the 3.7 version for Jessie).

If there is any way we can help now, please do not hesitate to provide
pointers. If you have work in progress, do not hesitate to push it in a
temporary branch so we may be able to shim in.
