According to the package tracker , the migration has been held up
about two years because of bug #768843 . Looking at the bug, a
version of fetchmail which fixes that bug has been uploaded to
experimental in June. I expect that once the maintainer is ready,
perhaps when upstream makes a final release, that a new package will be
uploaded to unstable and will eventually migrate to buster.
