Hello Release Team friends,

I uploaded ppp-2.5.0-1+1 to experimental back in September, and I think
it's time to unleash it on unstable, ideally in the next few days. This
is an ABI break both due to the new upstream version but there are also
significant changes in this release that may break dependent packages.

Any way to reduce possible breakage, or to detect and fix it before the transition starts? Like rebuilding rdeps, or checking rdep autopkgtests?

I'll go an do some rebuilds now and see how they go. If any breakage occurs it will be obvious at build time.

The upload I'm planning, 2.5.0-1+2, only has a minor fix for loong64 and
a changelog fix.

As usual this isn't a traditional library package upload so the Ben file
looks a bit foreign. See #890204 for a previous time we did this.

I have added a tracker, should appear in an hour or two.

Many thanks.


Chris Boot
