Hi Etienne,

I'm already preparing a new shibboleth-sp2 upload fixing the bug which
keeps it out of testing.  If you've got issues with the current
packages, don't hesitate to open bug reports and explain the solutions
employed in your packages.  Once everything is in testing, I'm open to
providing backports as well.  I try to make the unstable uploads
reasonably backport-friendly.  Besides the above, testing is also
greatly appreciated.
