Dear release team,

I would like to get a transition slot for glibc 2.30. It is available in
experimental for 2 months and there are no known issues or regression.
It has been built successfully on all release architectures and most
ports architectures. It fails to build on hurd-i386 but it is already
fixed in git. It also fails to build on alpha, ia64 and sparc64 due
to a few testsuite issues that need to be investigated and which are
similar to existing failures in version 2.29. It doesn't build on
kfreebsd-*, but this has been the case for a few glibc releases already.

As glibc is using symbol versioning, there is no soname change. That
said a few packages are using libc internal symbols and have to be
rebuilt for this transition (some packages only on some architectures):
 - apitrace
 - bro
 - dante
 - gcc-9
 - gcc-10
 - gcc-snapshot
 - libnih
 - libnss-db
 - unscd

Ben file:

Here is the corresponding ben file:
  title = "glibc";
  is_affected = .depends ~ /libc[0-9.]* \(<</;
  is_good = .depends ~ /libc[0-9.]* \(<< 2.31\)/;
  is_bad = .depends ~ /libc[0-9.]* \(<< 2.30\)/;

In addition a few new symbols have been added that might prevent a few
other packages to migrate to testing until glibc migrates if they pick
up the new symbols, however those are really limited in this version.

Thanks for considering.
