Both of you, please don't turn this into an NMU war in the archive: that doesn't benefit anyone. I would have preferred it if Adam had not immediately uploaded a 0-day revert, but preserving the status quo from bookworm is not the worst state to be in while we discuss this. If Adam's concerns about this change are valid, then we should address them, either by doing something different in debootstrap or by reporting bugs against affected packages. If Adam's concerns about this change turn out to be unfounded, then we should reinstate my change (as NMU'd by Luca) in a calm and considered way, and all we will have lost is a few days of progress and a few bytes of changelog. smcv (speaking as an individual developer, not on behalf of the TC, but I hope this would be TC consensus if we had had a chance to discuss it)
