Yes.  I'm close to finished.  One riddle is remaining:

$ rmadison r-other-mott-happy | grep  " unstable "
r-other-mott-happy | 2.4-2         | unstable           | source
r-other-mott-happy | 2.4-3         | unstable           | source

Well, all cases where unreleased architectures (kfreebsd-*) and I need
to admit that I do not invest much time into this question since we have
currently way more urgent open issues.  I'm pretty sure it is because of
missing Build-Depends but I did not checked.

Kind regards
