Hi all,

Glibc 2.36 was released last week. I'd hoped to have an archive test
rebuild done with a recent snapshot but with one thing and another this
didn't happen. So I'd like some thoughts about what to do wrt getting the
update in before feature freeze.

One option would be to start a test rebuild asap, fix the issues found and
then upload 2.36. Another option would be to upload 2.36 asap, then start a
test rebuild and fix the issues as they are found, and in parallel with
running all the autopkgtests.

I don't expect this to be a very disruptive update. Some header file
shuffling is known to cause some build failures, but it shouldn't be too
bad (famous last words!).

What do the release team think?
