I should have this resolved within a few days.  There was a prolonged
delay in the NEW queue for lttng-tools which caused the other dependent
package to block.  A rejection was eventually issued, but for some
reason I did not receive the notification - which could be my fault, I'm
not sure.  Either way, I'm about upload new packages which should
resolve the ftp-master concerns and things should unblock shortly.  I
must thank Michael Jeanson, he's been very helpful in preparing these
updates we should have this all fixed up very soon.
