I'm member of the release team. Can you please elaborate how this is
supposed to work, because rust is/was involved in several transitions
that I'd like to finish. Because I know rust is "weird", I was holding
off reporting this for quite some time, but in this case I am missing
progress. It's unclear to me how this is supposed to work. Also, are you
saying that the packages would build fine if rebuild in testing? Is this
package "provided" by some other package. Is there better tooling
available than inspecting the Binaries file on a mirror?
