I had almost finished the email to the release team, when I did some
final checks. And whilst I agree the unrelated changes upstream are very
small, I unfortunately enabled the testsuite in 1.6 (in experimental)
now that node-tape is available in unstable. As node-tape is not
available in testing (stretch), I would have to disable the tests when
moving to unstable.
All in all, I think it will be easier to create a stretch branch in git
& add a patch which will also make the unblocking process easier.
I will work on that today. But if I run out of time, please feel free to
take it forward.
