Aah, there's always a fine print. :-)

In that case, would you mind holding off your krb5 upload by, say, a
week, as to give a bit of time for most Bin-NMUs to build against 1.6?
I'm happy for this period to be fixed (one week), instead of making it
dependant of the percentage of Bin-NMUs successfully built. But given
the current state of transitions in unstable, it would help a lot having
krb5 be as small as possible.

cvsnt's failure seems to be caused by #506801, which should be trivial
to fix.

Ugh, I'll try to find a mipsen person to ask to.

- Always.
