Thanks to the kind sponsoring of Akira TAGOH, scim 1.4.2-1 was uploaded
to unstable.  As of writing it's built on every arches except arm [1].

The binNMUs are arranged by release managers, and have already started.
You may notice a new version (with +b1 in the version number) appearing
in the archive soon.  If you don't plan to do a new upload, then you
only need to make sure the new binNMUed version still works fine.

If you did/do plan to upload a new version, it is necessary to wait one
or two extra days until scim 1.4.2-1 is installed on all buildds, but
you can start preparing now.  As for the build dependency of
libscim-dev, according to the release manager's opinion [2], you
should NOT bump the libscim-dev version just because of the ABI
transition (but of course, you should bump it if your new upload indeed
needs newer version of scim, for example in the configure check).  Also,
if your package depends on other libraries other than libscim8c2a,
please make sure the other libraries are either not affected by this
transition, or already finished the transition.  If you package builds a
library (I believe nothing in the official archive, I am thinking of
skim), you need to be very careful, read the announcements for this and
the previous (3.3 -> 4.0) transition, and maybe also check for some
examples (I find the patch in [3] very illustrative).

Thank you all for the patience and coordination.
