[It appears the original request never reached the debian-release list.
I'm assuming this is due to the (gzipped!) attached debdiff being over
2MB in size]

That bug is only marked as found in 5.7.0+dfsg-1, which has never been
in testing.  If that's correct, and it doesn't affect earlier versions,
then I'm afraid that fixing it, whilst appreciated, is not directly
relevant for an unblock request.

When was the upload prepared?  The RC bug was reported more than four
months ago.

I'm afraid that's way too large to be reviewed at this point.

Those generally sound like things one wouldn't expect to see as part of
a package being considered for unblocking; during a freeze, changes
should be kept minimal, which the above don't qualify as.

It's possible that another team member might have different opinions,
but I'm afraid I'd have to say no at this point.
