Migration report for Tue 2020-01-28

About 30 packages stuck, there are big transitions going on. I'm
focusing on the samba stack, and residual cluster stack migrations:
- samba
- ldb/tdb/tevent/talloc
- sssd
- pacemaker

Pacemaker has been stuck for a while, and I believe the current
blockage is due to python3.8. I somewhat traced it down to:
pacemaker -> pacemaker-resource-agents -> resource-agents ->
cluster-glue -> python3.8 -> libpython3.8-stdlib -> libffi

I recently rebuilt cluster-glue, which was still using python3.7, but
more is needed.

Regarding samba, I had to merge two i386 hints (for samba/i386 and
tdb/i386), trigger rebuilds after ldb/talloc/tdb were uploaded, and
kick new test runs with specific triggers to sort out tdb runs with
plinth and samba itself.

sssd has an FTBFS[1] with python3.8, which I started to troubleshoot
last night and will continue today. That rebuild needs to work to
unblock all of this.

Finally, ldb is stuck because of python3-defaults, which still has many reds[2].
