I've usertagged the blocking bugs so that one can easily evalutate the
status of the transition. You can see the list at:

A quick comment about the transition's status:

- still to be fixed:
  * samba will be fixed by vorlon soon (I guess)
  * sendmail needs to be fixed
  * debian-edu-config: maintainer is busy, a patch is welcome

- fixed in svn:
  * ntp is fixed in svn, waiting for #363193 to be fixed (if
    that's planned to happen soon)
  * resolvconf is fixed in svn (the bug is marked as serious as the
    new dhcp breaks the current resolvconf)

- fixed:
  * I've NMUed whereami with a fix
  * network-manager is fixed (I sent a patch)

Patches to fix any package from the first set is more than welcome :)
