  Hi Ivo,

thanks for noticing about golang-golang-x-sys.

I just had a quick look, so it turns out that:

- testing has "golang-golang-x-sys (= 0.0~git20181228.9a3f9b0-1)"
- unstable has "golang-golang-x-sys (=0.0~git20190412.9773273-1)"

As long as I upload a source package to unstable, it will be built
against golang-golang-x-sys from unstable, hence it will be unsuitable
for testing.

It seems that I should instead upload to *testing-proposed-update**s*,
am I correct?

Please notice that the version of docker.io in unstable right now
(18.09.1+dfsg1-7) has two bug fixes compared to testing:

- *#925224*, which was initially the reason to open this unblock bug
- *#921600*, which is a bug fix I just uploaded, and I believe should
also be part of buster

If you agree with this additional bug fix, then what version should I
use for the package:

- testing-proposed-updates: *18.09.1+dfsg1-7+deb10u1* seems suitable
- unstable: should I bump the version as well, so that it's above
18.09.1+dfsg1-7+deb10u1? Something like 18.09.1+dfsg1-7+deb11u1 (+deb11
feels strange honestly).

Sorry to bother you with these, I'm very new and learning all these

Thanks again,
