Dear Release Team,

Please consider unblocking strip-nondetermism 0.033-1. This is mostly

 a) Enable logging so we can start to remove this ugly hack by looking
    at build logs. (#862031)

 b) Update the package description so that people do not start relying on
    the tool for similar reasons. (#862029)

The relevant changelog entry is:

strip-nondeterminism (0.033-1) unstable; urgency=medium

  [ Chris Lamb ]
  * Move from verbose_print to nonquiet_print so we print when normalising a
    file. This is so we can start to target the removal of
    strip-nondeterminism itself. (Closes: #862031)
  * Update package long descriptions to clarify that this tool is a temporary
    workaround. (Closes: #862029)
  * Include the filename when testing failure fixtures.

  [ Bernhard M. Wiedemann ]
  * Only call get_normalizer_by_name once
  * Make get_normalizer_by_name O(1)
