The bug number issue has been fixed in the bts correctly and no action
is required regarding that.

It's bug 970798 that's blocking net-snmp, or rather, the issue it's
reporting. In other words, the source doesn't need any change, the only
issue is that the binaries need to be built on the build daemons and
that requires an upload (without changes is good enough). I'll do that
if Craig doesn't respond in one or two days.
