I agree that is an unfortunate timing.

Assuming you do not want to revert your 0.13 upload, you indeed risk
having to go through TPU - which restricts you a bit more IRT the fixes
you can get unblocked.

Sorry, but I have to decline on giving you a "carte blanche" unblock for
the openrc version in sid.  It is not because I want to be mean.

Your options include (possibly not limited to):

 * Have a team mate fix the issue for you and upload it.  Perhaps Ritesh
   can do it, since he did the two previous uploads?

 * Convince us that #765785 is not RC.  At first glance, I'd say that
   could be a tough sell.
   - Alternatively, if it is not a regression since the current version
     in sid, fix the found version.  Though the reporter seems to
     assert this to be exactly the case.

 * Convince us that the current version in sid plus your fix (when
   uploaded) follows the freeze policy.  Again, likely to be a tough
   - Mind you, this would have to wait till you have an actual fix in
     sid, as we will need to review the whole deal together.
