Currently a few larger transitions hang for different reasons: octave
together with hdf5 is blocked by bug
#542333 that the current
swig1.3-version makes gdal FTBFS, for this reason we cannot get the
necessary binNMUs for testing transition. The migration of the current
mysql5.1 is blocked by 5 RC bugs, where two are trivial (just replacement
of build dependencies), two are easily removable, but php5 now started to
FTBFS with the autoconf in testing and unstable, but still builds with the
version in stable (#542906).
And thanks to libgdal-ruby1.8 these two transitions want to glue together
to one. Fixing any of these two bugs would be very welcome.
