Hi, especially hi Stephen,

the first upload to stretch-backports has to go through NEW, so I need a
sponsor for my prepared uploads of unicode-data and wine.  Further they
need a non-source-only upload because of that (afaik).

Stephen (or any other DD who is in the backports ACL), can you do this
one time sponsoring once again for me?  If not, please just give a short
answer and I'll ask at debian-mentors.

The unicode-data backport was acknowledged by its maintainer

I've successfully built and tested these packages in a stretch environment.

unicode-data 10.0.0-3~bpo9+1

Have a look at it:


and get it with:

dget -x

And build it with e.g.:
debuild -g -v9.0-1

   * Rebuild for stretch-backports.
   * Add myself as uploader (for stretch-backports).


It's on the stretch-backports branch, commit

Or have a look at it:


and get it with:

dget -x

And build it with e.g.:
debuild -g -v1.8.7-2

Note: -v is not required, but recommended.  The mentors QA page
complains that wine closes bugs in a wrong way, because most were filed
against wine-development.  I'd say this warning can be ignored in this case.

   * Rebuild for stretch-backports.
   * Make versioned dependency on debhelper backports safe.

Greets and thanks in advance!
