Thanks for your investigations, but I wouldn’t waste too much time on 
bugs affecting packages from experimental. Such bug (FTBFS) will 
obviously have to be addressed for the next upload (hard to upload a 
package if it can’t be built ;), but in the mean time, it has zero 
effect on the release. Furthermore, as you already noticed, they may 
already be fixed upstream before that.

(That ;).

FWIW, PHPUnit 9 will probably not make it for Bullseye, as it may 
currently breaks many (if not most) of its reverse build-dependencies, 
so the related packages (php-codecoverage, php-timer, etc.) have no way 
to make it to Sid until Bullseye is released. The current rate of 
upstream adoption of PHPUnit 9 seems really low. We’re still carrying a 
fair number of patches to make testsuites work with PHPUnit 8 (and even 
lower). I guess it will be fair game to upload PHPUnit 9 (and Synfony 5) 
early in the Bookworm release process (as we uploaded PHPUnit 8 and 
Synfony 4 early in the Bullseye release process IIRC) and then fix the 
related mess it will cause.

Of course, patches to make the build of any package work with PHPUnit 9 
will be welcome (it’s nicer not to break too much thing, and many 
upstream may appreciate those patches and integrate them), but I don’t 
intend to work on these personally before Bullseye release a priori.
