As discussed in #debian-release, this huge migration involving unicode-xid, proc-macro2, etc, is blocked on some packages in NEW as well as other things including the autopkgtests.

Please be aware that rust autopkgtests are a new experimental thing and as such will take a while to iron out. After that though, future stuff should be much easier.

To help this process, is there a way we can mass-download all the logs of all the failures? I basically want to grep all the rust-* failure logs for ^error, and group them per source package. That way it'll be easier to see which things we have to automate solutions for, and which things we can get away with a manual override.
