I looked a bit at sbcl. It is being held in proposed by a regression in
cl-xmls, but looking at the cl-xmls failure, it is actually a failure of
the clisp tests, not the sbcl tests. There is a version of clisp in
proposed but it's failing to build on ppc64el and s390x with the error
does not cover CODE_ADDRESS_RANGE" (i think this might be caused by kernel
changes perhaps?). clisp seems nearly dead upstream, so perhaps not testing
it in autopkgtests makes sense? Or removing it? Or ignoring the test
failure in cl-xmls.

suricata fails autopkgtest in a strange way, and it turns out Steve
reported the reason three years ago:
https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=895342 (the service does
not start unless there is a nic called eth0). I filed a bug in launchpad
and tagged it to show up in excuses so hopefully people won't waste time on
this again.

stylish-haskell ftbfs on some arches because the new version has a new
dependency (from src:haskell-ghc-lib-parser) that did not build on those
architectures because the build runs out of memory. I'm testing a build in
my ppa with parallel builds disabled (
to see if that helps but even then it's not going to build on s390x (
https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=967075) so there is still
something to be figured out here. And it still OOMed on arm64.

acpica-unix ftbfs on armhf. Digging uncovered a segfault and more digging
revealed that this was caused by the Debian maintainer "ack"ing previous
NMUs by throwing part of one of them away. I uploaded it again and it

request-tracker5 ftbfs for fairly trivial reasons. I reported a bug in
debian about this: https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=988905

python-iptables was failing its (superficial) autopkgtest due to changes in
the output of ldconfig -v. I filed a PR upstream
https://github.com/ldx/python-iptables/pull/322 and uploaded it.

ogre-1.9 ftbfs on armhf. I found an upstream PR with a fix (
https://github.com/OGRECave/ogre/pull/1592) and uploaded it.
