Ah, I see.  If we wait for libgcrypt to become stable (which was only a
few weeks away if I understand correctly), will it be uploaded into
debian relatively quickly, and installed on the builds, to allow the
gnutls build to come through?

It seems clear that we won't be able to release on 1 Dec, while there
are no major outstanding bugs, the unreleased trunk contains new stuff
that needs to be tested.  So we could aim for Dec 15 or something
instead, which might give us time to wait for the buildd's to test it.
