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. > I meant context about why the package now FTBFS.

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.
