Regarding CVE-2016-4423 and CVE-2016-2403 which are closed by upstream
in 2.8.6 and 3.0.6:

As already mentioned, 2.8.6 in branch 2.8 should be ready for sid.

With 3.0.6 there was a dependency problem in symfony. I circumvented
this by reporting the issue upstream [1] and cherry-picking my proposed
fix back into our packaging [2].

The tests for 3.0.6 are still failing in experimental, which is caused
by a too new version of php-phpdocumentor-reflection. This issue is not
new and already present in current 3.0.5+dfsg-1.
Given that the testsuite already is failing and 3.0.6 closes two CVEs, I
suggest to upload wip/dabe/3.0.6 to experimental (note that d/changelog
is still open in wip/dabe/3.0.6 - use "gbp dch --auto --release" on it).

I'm not sure how to get the tests working again with the newer version
of php-phpdocumentor-reflection in experimental, but I'll try to work on
it - yet I'm not sure if I find time for it this week.
