Freedombox stable updates. It was a shame 19.2 didn’t make it into buster, but as I understand it, post release restrictions are more like the soft freeze than the full freeze criteria. The descriptive commit breakdown has already been written, but if the release team still object to such a large change all at once, it may be necessary to cherry-pick by severity, including raising BTS bugs to match.
