I investigated casper one with Rafael on Wednesday, but he continued the
investigation (and eventually talked to @paelzer and found what was
happening) on Thursday.

This was an interesting case.  dropbear version 2020.79-1 failed at
a certain point in the past, and this failure blocked libtommath from
migrating (it's worth mentioning that libtommath had *also* failed, so
it was blocking itself).  Then, a new upload of dropbear was made
(version 2020.80-1), and this version did pass.  However, libtommath
was still listed as blocked due to dropbear 2020.79-1.

Rafael and I tried to understand what was happening, and why
libtommath's tests were not retriggered when the new dropbear version
was uploaded.  Long story short, after talking to Lucas Kanashiro we
learned that these retries have to be submitted by hand.  So that's
Rafael did.

- rsync

I investigated the failure, submitted a bug & an MP to fix it:


The new version has been uploaded and the package has migrated.

- libtommath

I also spent some time investigating this one.  It was failing with
"badpkg" on i386, and I noticed that it had a hint (force-badtest) for
another version of the package, so I thought it made sense to expand
this hint and just ignore all versions of libtommath on i386.  I filed
an MP for this, but vorlon did not accept it & kindly fixed the package
instead (it was actually a problem with cross dependencies & cross GCC).
