However, there's one package that seems like it is going to cause a

hand, pytest 4 won't migrate to testing until all its autopkgtest failures
(which include pytest-xdist) clear (right?).  So it seems we have a loop
here.  How do we resolve it?

I believe the solutions is for python-pytest and python3-pytest to add
Breaks: python-pytest-xdist (<< 1.29.0-1~)
Breaks: python3-pytest-xdist (<< 1.29.0-1~)

Thanks. As an aside, what does the tilde at the end of the version number mean? I have seen that in control files before, but I've been unable to find anything in the documentation about it.
