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.
