No, there is no list of scheduled Bin-NMUs. Hopefully there'll be one
with the new buildd pages in the medium-term future, but at the moment
there is none.

Anyway, the exact list of Bin-NMUs is rather uninteresting. More
interesting can be, I think, the current list of known transitions
against which the Release Team works, which you were pointed at on IRC


If something's not on that list, we don't know about it. At the moment
we don't know about webkit: nobody has informed us about it. (I've added
it now.)

For each transition, it is said if has Bin-NMUs pending to be scheduled
or not. This has false positives (i.e., sometimes the "Needs another
Bin-NMU round: yes" is not true), but well, it works okay most of the

The thing is, if it's on that page, they'll get scheduled.

I'm told Mike was looking into this, but it indeed looks like circular
