Dear maintainers,

With a recent upload of python-bleach the autopkgtest of
python-readme-renderer fails in testing when that autopkgtest is run
with the binary packages of python-bleach from unstable. It passes when
run with only packages from testing. In tabular form:
                       pass            fail
python-bleach          from testing    3.0.2-1
python-readme-renderer from testing    20.0-1
versioned deps [0]     from testing    from unstable
all others             from testing    from testing

I copied some of the output at the bottom of this report. It seems you
just need to update the reference of your test.

Currently this regression is contributing to the delay of the migration
of python-bleach to testing [1]. Of course, python-bleach shouldn't just
break your autopkgtest (or even worse, your package), but it seems to me
that the change in python-bleach was intended and your package needs to
update to the new situation. If needed, please change the bug's severity.

If this is a real problem in your package (and not only in your
autopkgtest), the right binary package(s) from python-bleach should
really add a versioned Breaks on the unfixed version of (one of your)
package(s). Note: the Breaks is nice even if the issue is only in the
autopkgtest as it helps the migration software to figure out the right
versions to combine in the tests.
