Before heading on with Bionic Beaver, let's have a look at all the remaining
build failures in Artful Aardvark [1], which is the highest number of build
failures at the end of a release cycle we ever had.  Please don't repeat that
and plan to address these build failures in time for the Bionic Beaver release
(at least for all the packages in main and in seeds).

Bionic Beaver [2] is now open for development.  The development version already
starts with some changes:

 - dpkg, debhelper, apt merges.

 - library transitions: ICU, boost 1.65, libcdio

Please check your uploads in a bionic chroot, don't just test in a xenial or
artful environment.  See [3] or [4] how to setup such a development chroot.

Auto syncs will be enabled soonish.
