If it is a new source package to enter main, then yes, it needs a report.

This is still pending, any update?

Please make the appropriate changes to the seeds.

These are still pending.

Is there any reason not to add hplip-base and hplip-ppds to desktop?

For a package to stay in main, it needs to be added to a seed or made a
dependency (direct or indirect) of a package already in a seed.  We're
trying to get the archive and the seeds back in sync so that this list is
empty.

tk8.3-dev is not a dependency of any seeded package in the authoritative
germinate output (which I think excludes hppa); that's why it's in this list
of packages which want to move to universe.  However, its source is already
in main, so it doesn't necessarily make sense to put some of its binaries in
universe.  This is one of the scenarios I outlined in my original mail.
