Hi All,

I just pushed the wip/debian/2.92 branch on salsa. This is a merge of
the current master and the upstream/2.92 branch from Jesse's repo. I
have confirmed all the fixes to Debian bugs mentioned in the upstream
log, and refreshed one of the patches. As a result, there are two
debian/changelog entries currently open there. I wil take care of
keeping those in line with the current 2.91 branch. I guess I will
build this version for Devuan/experimental during the week-end, and
call for testers to check on any regression.

It is my understanding that we are going to upload 2.91 to sid?
