Package: git
Version: 1:2.19.2-1
Severity: wishlist

Hi Jonathan. I use testing + experimental git because I'm too lazy to
build my own & I want to test Debian's.

As of 1-2 weeks ago I can't anymore because:
    $ sudo apt install -t unstable git
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading state information... Done
    Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
    requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
    distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
    or been moved out of Incoming.
    The following information may help to resolve the situation:
    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
     git : Depends: libc6 (>= 2.28) but 2.27-8 is to be installed
    E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

Here's my preferences.d file:

    Explanation: Ævar likes being on the bleeding git edge
    Package: git git-doc git-svn git-email git-man
    Pin: release a=unstable
    Pin-Priority: 1001
    Explanation: Now git depends on a later libpcre2 (in unstable, not testing)
    Package: libpcre2-dev libpcre2-8-0 libpcre2-16-0 libpcre2-32-0 
    Pin: release a=unstable
    Pin-Priority: 1001

I can "fix" this by adding "libc6" to that latter "Package" line, but then:
    $ sudo apt install -t unstable git
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer 
    [A huge list including X11 etc. and stuff I definitely use]
    Use 'sudo apt autoremove' to remove them.
    The following additional packages will be installed:
      git-man libc6
    Suggested packages:
      git-daemon-run | git-daemon-sysvinit git-el git-email git-gui gitk gitweb 
git-cvs git-mediawiki git-svn locales
    The following packages will be REMOVED:
    [A huge list of stuff I definitely use, including build-essential]
    The following packages will be upgraded:
      git git-man libc6
    WARNING: The following essential packages will be removed.
    This should NOT be done unless you know exactly what you are doing!
    3 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 77 to remove and 3 not upgraded.
    Need to get 10.1 MB of archives.
    After this operation, 488 MB disk space will be freed.
    You are about to do something potentially harmful.
    To continue type in the phrase 'Yes, do as I say!'

So basically in order to proceed I need to (it seems) pin my entire OS
to unstable, since everything depends on libc6.

If it's possible to build the package so it's >= 2.27-8 (in testing)
instead of >= 2.28-2 that would be awesome. I suppose supporting
2.24-11+deb9u3 in stable would be too much of a ... stretch.
