Why is this relatively small change a problem in a package where new upstream versions are permitted after the release of stable? Doing a change in 2.24.2-2 prior to the release sounds less risky than uploading the same change as part of 2.24.3-1~deb10u1 to buster-pu. > Therefore, we will not unblock > this change, but we want the release notes to mention this, so users are > warned. This means the default desktop is expected to have crashes due to this. Many standalone applications like liferea or zenity (#930932) are also expected to crash. Please mention in all buster announcements that users on non-SSE i386 should defer upgrading from stretch until this is fixed in the next point release of buster. > Paul cu Adrian -- "Is there not promise of rain?"
