Dear Ubuntu Developers,

The new 'update-excuse' tag can be used to make a bug appear on update
excuses [1] page among the excuses why a particular package is not
migrating to the release pocket:

casper (1.427 to 1.428)
 * Maintainer: Ubuntu Developers
 * 6 days old
 * Also see bug 1850184 last updated on Mon Oct 25 16:59:32 2019
 * autopkgtest for casper/1.428: amd: Regression , arm64 Pass, ...

The tag can be useful when triaging and fixing an issue takes a longer
time or needs coordination with others. For marking package versions
in stable releases the update-excuse-$SERIES tags can be used.

For more details please see [2] and feel free to share the news on Twitter [3].
