Has there been any progress with this bug?  I see the new package is
still on mentors, but I don't think the release managers will accept a
new upstream release at this stage of the freeze, therefore I'm
currently not considering sponsoring your package.

However, if I understood it correctly, upstream removed the failed
test causing this FTBFS?  So my understanding would be, that a
legitimate fix would be to disbale this test (without uploading a NEW
upstream version).  If you could prepere that, I'm willing to sponsor
the upload; if you got the OK from the release team for the new upstream
version, I'm also willing to upload the version on mentors.
