No, that is not how a transition is supposed to work. Do you expect
maintainer of nodejs package to fix all issues of all packages using
nodejs by themselves when updating nodejs versions?

I did not even get heads up with webmock transition in ruby team. It was
right away FTBFS and autoremoval from testing for packages failing to
build with webmock 3.

I can try and help, but as maintainer of libjs-fetch, it is your
responsibility to fix issues of your package when dependencies change.

Indeed, that is why it is uploaded first to experimental and giving
heads up to packages affected by this transition. We can definitely wait
for a reasonable time before uploading to unstable.

1. chai itself is FTBFS with nodejs 6
2. we generally want to ship the latest versions
3. Some packages are already starting to require newer versions of chai,
for example node-yargs (whose tests are disabled currently).

You could ask upstream to move to chai 4 and take their help. Or you
could also disable tests.
