#817789 — those are FTBFS bugs, they should be severity:serious.

If I were you I'd just file bugs for all of them that now FTBFS.
For easy checking whether a package now fails to build you can just
check the status in reproducible.debian.net/$pkg, I think most (if not
all) of them have already been rebuilt in the meantime.

Unfortunately the only packages maintained by DPMT are
whilst the only one by PAPT is prospector.  (information obtained by
So I'm sorry there are no good chances of fixing those by just mailing
d-python@, you really need to file bugs for them all (if most were
maintained in the python teams somebody could have gone through them and
fixing them in little time).

But be assured, if you don't do that yourself somebody else will do them
in one of the several efforts/projects that involves rebuilding
