On Saturday it was said to last "a few days".  I don't remember such a
blockage before -- IIRC testing migration restarted hours after Stretch's
release.  I have no idea.

I just wanted to speed up the backport as much as possible -- as-is, Buster
is useless for GUI users.

Actually, I just noticed that the "mangled" part is the +debian1 suffix in
the _Debian revision_ part -- a lintian false positive.

Lintian apparently assumes that +debian means the upstream tarball has been
repacked, but such a tag would happen inside the _upstream_ part (ie, before
the last dash).  Here, it means that Debian is a downstream, and the tag
lives in the _Debian revision_ part (after the dash).

So I'd add a lintian override.

I see no other problems, and no explosions during testing -- should we
upload as-is?  If so, could you s/UNRELEASED/unstable/?
