Control: affects -1 + src:curl
Usertags: unblock
Severity: normal

Please unblock package curl

We have two changes on unstable:
1) Curl's test suite now skips flaky tests and it's critical to the
result of the build:
This means we get a FTBFS if tests fails, considering curl has a very
extensive test-suite (around 1600 tests) and that this will increase
the reliability of our backporting of patches throughout stable,
oldstable and oldoldstable (hello lts/elts), this is very important.

2) Add support to PEM certificates for libcurl3-nss:
When working on having the improved test coverage, we noticed the
possibility to fix this long-standing bug. Users of libcurl3-nss are
now able to load PEM certificates (like from ca-certificates), which
makes it easier to run a safer libcurl with nss.

[ Reason ]
Major improvements to tests and fix of a long-standing bug related to
usage of NSS and PEM certificates.

[ Impact ]
Maintenance of curl will be much more reliable from now on as we have
better test coverage with results which can't be ignored.

[ Tests ]
I've run at least 8 builds of the curl package in our buildd
infrastructure and didn't spot any flaky tests left.
Regarding the NSS + PEM change, curl's extensive unit tests passed.

[ Risks ]
More work and less reliability maintaining curl on trixie (for
backporting patches, for example).

[ Checklist ]
  [x] all changes are documented in the d/changelog
  [x] I reviewed all changes and I approve them
  [x] attach debdiff against the package in testing

[ Other info ]
I would like 7.88.1-6 to migrate as soon as possible (it has been more
than 10 days already) because I want to push 6 CVE fixes after this
upload. I will also request for the CVE fixes to be unblocked but I
would like this version to migrate first so it happens sooner (trying
to avoid baking this for an extra 20 days).

unblock curl/7.88.1-6

Thank you,

Samuel Henrique <samueloph>
