- Upload the new major release to experimental
Run autopkgtest of reverse dependencies and rebuild all reverse build dependencies. Use tools like https://salsa.debian.org/ruby-team/meta build script.
- If a reverse dependency does not have tests enabled, then use the upstream testsuite with package.json updated
- Report bugs against all failing packages. Give reasonable time to fix things (2 week to a month at least).
- Fix packages in unstable or in experimental.
- Upload to unstable when important breakages are fixed.
