I retired the packages now. To make sure the final repo does not
contain any packages with broken dependencies, the Freeze Exception
process needs to be used to get packages from updates-testing that do
not contain broken dependencies into the stable repo:

What happens with packages that get broken after the warning but before
the Final Freeze?
