Hello Release team,

I'd like to know how to proceed to get gnash back in testing/jessie,
just to avoid doing rejectable uploads/unblock requests.

In April, gnash 0.8.11~git20140419-1 was in testing. 0.8.11~git20140708
upstream snapshot was uploaded three months later but it never reached
testing because of FTBFS on armel, see #754311.
Since nobody seems interested in working either on fixing std::future on
armv5 or reverting std::future changes only on gnash, I would upload a
0.8.11~git20140708.20140419-1 as below (d/changelog since

gnash (0.8.11~git20140708.20140419-1) unstable; urgency=medium

  * Tarball is 0.8.11~git20140419 one, which built successfully on all
    archs, see #754311.
  * Revert all debian changes since 0.8.11~git20140419-1 except:
    + Switch from xulrunner-dev to npapi-sdk-dev B-D (Closes: #752836).

What about that? Any better alternatives?
